Mysterious callsign on Shanwick freq 5649
« on: January 09, 2013, 02:32:34 PM »
Callsign HZMS5A.  Today from 14:15 onwards working 5649 kHz.

Couldn't rx the aircraft but Shanwick read-back indicated that he was at FL430, so presumably a biz-jet.

Nothing relevant showing on the usual ADS-B websites. 

Actually the only a/c at that FL showing over western Europe is an Emirates 777F over Switzerland!

Could the Callsign have been the reg number HZ-MS5A?

I... I..

wow.  it was so odd that I didn't even consider that it could have been a reg! 

Thanks :)
