    A bit haphazard matching things up. Sometimes it does, sometimes not!

    Been offline a lot lately due to faulty HDD and only just noticed the NEK and NFA with Lat and Long positions and they are not Mlats; how long has this been effected? Are there other Dash8's fitted with ADS-B?

    NEG,NEK,NEZ,NFA. I think that's all so far. First one was just over a month ago. They spend a week in Nelson for maintenance and return to flight with ADS-B.

    Probably only the Air Nelson a/c's will be fitted with Ads-b; the few AT75's will probably be discarded as they age. Goodbye Mlats, perhaps.

    And hello ADS-B

    The old ATR's will be replaced over coming years, so it seems like there is no point to bother upgrading them. If I remember it's ADS-B mandatory above 24500 from next year sometime. ATR is 25000 max, so can operate below anyway.

    It appears that the following Q300's now have ADSB fitted. ZK-NFA, NEF, NEG, NEK, NEM, NEU, NEW, NEZ

    Opps. May not be 100% correct.

    Now the problem will be getting all those private a/c more visible on screen A very few have Ads-b , most don't even have Mode S and operate still on Mode C. Primary radar is to be discontinued soon and surely it is in the interest of private a/c owners to have their alt and position known to other users of the sky.
