Sorry for the delay in replying!

I imagine that you're probably using a cooked feed from your receiver, i.e. the receiver is decoding the messages and sending them on to VRS in BaseStation / Port 30003 format. If you can send a raw format (Beast, AVR or SBS-3) to VRS then you should be able to see more callsigns.

If you're already sending a raw feed format then check that you haven't told VRS to ignore callsigns from BDS2,0 messages:

This is particularly true if the missing callsigns have asterisks against them in ADSBExchange.
