    Radar Names

    I Am radar EGSS1 and have noticed today that radar N-EGSS1 comes up on the r/h aircraft panel from time to time as well as EGSS1.
    I then look at the radar filter box and see there are a few N-***** radar names can anyone tell me if this is new or what is happening here?
    regards Gordon EGSS1.

    The N-prefix is our new database that most radars will be moved into in the future.
    First we moved the NET2 network radars into the database and at the same time we changed NET2 name into "real names", but with the N- prefix.
    N-radars are uploading data every second instead of every 10-15 second. We will get back with more information about this later.

    The above post should be updated with some newer information.

    with info about F-prefix T-prefix

    The "Prefix" info should be added to the FAQ page.

    What does "T-FIR1" = ?
    Couldn't find anything for it on the forum and not listed on the FAQ page. FlightAware or Search engines didn't know it.
