Hi Seymour

I'm asking again.

Please give us more clues.  Callsign, speed, altitude.  ADS-B or just Mode-S?

Is this one of the hex codes that are allocated to US biz jets operators to avoid true identity and tracking on the FR24/ADSB etc ? ?

Interesting point Ian.  I know FlightAware had proposed such an arrangement but wasn't aware it had been adopted.

Have you seen this mentioned somehwere?

A very good point but these aircraft are more than likely spam as they only pop up for a short while and r at a low height...Not heard either of that system being adopted as I believe it is very expensive to set up....

Mike I will only supply these HEX if I have more details in line with you suggestion...Unfortunately these just pop up with a hex and altitude, nothing else....
