Folks,

This does say 'within the last 24 hours' but my list only appears to relate to around 3000 seconds previous which is under an hour and my list doesn't appear to get much bigger than around 10 to 15 flights.

I appreciate my data is not used for every flight that appears on my map and my range is not great as only have an indoor aerial.

How is this listed?

Had my feeder on all weekend and this list doesn't seem to exceed 3000 seconds.

Puzzled what it is actually telling me.

Yep, you're right. The source code (the authoritative source :wink: ) only keeps track of positions-by-feeder for an hour. The claim of 24 hours in the title is erroneous. We'll fix that. (I can get the value of extending the time period but we'd have to look at the impact on performance, which is a concern.)
