Mode S code 000000 !
« on: November 10, 2008, 07:23:13 PM »
Evening All,

I live in Sale about 5 miles from MAN.

In 'my flights' for the past couple of hours  a Mode S code '000000' keeps being listed.

All it shows is 'Levelled' , 000000  only, it then gets  'timed out'  but then

reapears, any suggestions of what could be causing this.

Is there anyone else in the North West that have this in their flights.



Regards


Phil

Hi Phil

Yes, I'm in Chorley, north of Manchester, and I see this quite often - myLog says I first got it in August, and the last date was 16th October. No other details at all though.

No idea what's going on - it could even be from more than one source?

Hi Rod,

Glad its not only me then.

Must be a North West thing.

It disappeared after I turned RB off and back on again.

One other point,  great job with the outlines and logos.


Cheers

Phil

Thanks, Phil.

We could start a rumour that it's a secret stealth bomber project from Warton ;-)

Possibly one of the "mysterious one-second transmissions" that has been discussed for months over on the "other" forum - see http://www.kinetic-avionics.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?t=5691

Theories range from ACMI pods, CAA test transmissions, Klingons, Tardis, etc...........

I've been getting these strange transmissions for months.

I can added another one:
Last week we drove in a Saab 93 and used the Radarbox on a EEE901.
As long as the auto was turned one 000000 showed up in the active list. After shutting down the car 000000 did disappear.

I've been seeing hex code 000000 a lot today.  The squawk codes used are interesting:
0007 - Strange one - may 007!!
3352 - London Military
0465 - Waddington Special Tasks
2006 - Orcam Shannon Centre

Been getting the 000000 over here on the other side of the country so maybe not just a Lancashire/Cheshire thing

Any way does anything fly serviceable out of Warton? ;-)

00000 is now squawking 2462 (NATO CAOC 9 Exercises).  I suspect it's part of the CQWI Exercises.

Are we saying that there is more than one 000000?

Possibly.  I'm seeing regular squawkcode changes, so maybe more than one aircraft.  Currently 000000 is squawking 0007 again.

Just a thought is is the FR Aviation Falcons, who are part of the CQWI exercise, when they are active? I note if they appear in their own right I don't see the 000000!!

I'm watching the Falcons and the various Sentinel and Sentry aircraft to look for any correlation between them and these 000000 signals.  Even Nimrods.  No luck so far.  It's VERY active at the moment on the CQWI exercise.

It's the strange range of squawk codes that puzzles me.  Currently 000000 is squawking 0060, which according to my list is reserved for the police force airborne units.
