Hi Jeff,

Its a mix of you are picking Mode-S aircraft as well. Read the FAQ below:

http://www.airnavsystems.com/forum/index.php?topic=8.0

Also you may just be picking a weak signal from other aircraft which are being picked up fully by the network. As the signal is weak and you are only getting a Mode-S signal is takes that rather than the network data.
