I guess you see all the new Boeing AC leaving for their new homes...

Nice.

Looking right now I see three in the PlanePlotter list:

ICAO Reg. Flight
AE4EC0 NO-REG BOE023
AA0921 N746DB BOE332 (Also showing in VRS)
738052 4X-ECH BOE904

Two are a bit too far South and/or too low for my antenna to pickup.

BTW ..Just a quick question. Im using the FR24 Windows program for decode. This is to feed to them, but I Never show on thier
pages as they over ride mine with T-KPAE2 which is thier box.

Is there a better one to use for decodes and feed to ?

Hi w7psk

Better? I don't know but there is a decoder program that works with the TV tuner SDR's that can now let PlanePlotter collect MLAT data as well as the normal ADS-B data. PlanePlotter can also feed various sites such as FlightAware and FlightRadar24.

If PlanePlotter does calculate successful MLAT positions, those positions are only available to the PlanePlotter network and would not be passed outside the PlanePlotter network i.e. not to FlightAware, etc,.

Does this sort of answer your last request?

Not sure I was too clear ... I use FR24 but wondered if any other decoders do a better job. I'm not tied to them as the free premium isn't all that much to not use it. Plus They seem to Bias their reports to their boxes. Ive seen several aircraft that I spot first and see my reports on FR but as soon as their box sees it they switch over. Or T-MLAT.
I guess I just want to feel useful, not sure the effort is worth it.

Also Is there a place to feed that would use my info. Being KPAE-8 means I'm the 8th receiver near my home airport.

Hi w7psk,

I've sent a private message, no need to clutter up the forum...
