call sign EXS52S on Live flight tracking

Intrigued to know Any ideas why this is there on Callsign EXS52S
Appears to be the Bardon Hill BT microwave tower about 6 miles south of EMA (EGNX)
Shown as a triangle with this call sign Static obviously
Cant see any others triangles shown anywhere else in the world

Code 7777 is not military, at least in the UK. It's assigned to SSR monitors which would account for what you're seeing.

Thanks
Apologies yes 7777 is for the UK would make sense having it up there although I dont suppose it supposed to be displayed as none of the others are in the UK or Europe

SSR monitors usually display an unfeasibly high or low altitude to assist in avoiding confusion. I wonder if the monitor in question is part of EMA's MLAT system?
