It would be useful to be able to bring Mode 3A Squawks from dump1090 into the aircraft list, although they are essentially untrackable it would allow users to work the data with various plugins, alerts etc!

I can decode mode A. However, it is impossible to tell the difference between mode A and mode C without knowing which one the ground station requested (which we don't know) so you can't reliably use them.
