    Unhappy Same Radar Name to different feeders?

    hi,

    today i saw a F-LOWL1 while i have T-LOWL1.
    is this possible and desirable?

    i think it's not. maybe i get an other device some days, i would have the same call ...

    reg

    The difference between your T feed and the F feed is, that the F feed is an FR24 box which is owned by FR24 and "borowed" to a user in your area..its pretty common on FR24 that your have identical suffixes...and only different prefixes like F/T

    tnx for the quick answer.
    i understand that, but i would give any spotter a different callsign suffix.
    its like an identification .. with heart und soul in it
    when someone have a FR24 box and a dvb-t stick or sbs-1/3,
    it would be nice to have the same suffix - there are enough free suffix numbers :P

    It may seem logical but consider these situation:

    - > Let say you have access to a rooftop and request a secondary FR box for said location. What would that call sign be?
    - > You have multiple receivers (be it FR24 or dvb-t sticks) at one location.

    Also this way it is clear how many F receivers there are at a location. If the first 6 are dvb-t then according to you the first FR24 receiver would be F-XXXX7.
    Now you can easily see that F-XXX5 has 4 other FR24 receivers in the vicinity. Mind you that the other 4 receivers don't have to be active.
