    I too would mark Bamaga if for no other reason than it is, I think, the only Aussie feeder that provides some coverage into another country (PNG) but I don't think those blue dots are a really big deal in the overall scheme of things. While Bamaga gives coverage at the tip, most of the Peninsula remains one of the great coverage black spots in Oz.

    The blue dots represent airports with 5 or more ADSB equipped flights per week. IIRC

    Nothing more, nothing less.

    EDIT. And the F or T code really has no association with the airport. F-YBSU1 is miles away from the coded airport. As is (I believe) F-YBBN3 and F-YMAY1.

    Welcome to FR24. Is YMEN9 a F or T feeder?. Cheers.

    Welcome to FR24. I wonder where the other ten YMMB feeders are - I've not ever seen a single one with the Moorabbin code. Cheers.

    I have a question some one may know the answer to. What are the rules for when to turn on or off an aircraft transponder?
    Is it up to the discretion of the pilot. Ive noticed at some busy internationl airports they keep transponders on till to the gate but here in australia they seem to shut off quickly. Is that just coverage, Flight rules in Australia, Or that certain airports are really busy so the pilot doesnt have time to get to it until they are at the gate?

    Cheers

    I'm using my own supplied and configured equipment. Is that what you mean?

    Thanks for the warm welcome!

    Although Moorabbin is technically my closest airport I can't pick up many signals from that direction due to geographical barriers (a hill to my South). I built a coaxial collinear antenna over the weekend which has extended my coverage out to Tullamarine for aircraft ~3500ft or higher.

    Arguably a T-YMMLx designation would be more appropriate

    Then you are a T feeder ie T-YMEN9. The F feeders are supplied by FR24. Thanks for the info.
