    Do you know the registrations of the Coastguard helicopters covering North Wales?

    Thanks. You could try using Playback for the days you think they were active.

    All the ones covering South Wales and the West Country display.

    The last time I recorded these aircraft on my SBS/BaseStation from here was:

    G-MCGJ S92 18/03/2016

    G-MCGK S92 20/05/2016

    But I wouldn't normally expect to pick them up at low altitude in North Wales from my location. So they may have been active since these dates.

    Both of those have ADS-B, or did when I last tracked them, so either they have it turned off or FR24 has decided to block them.
