VHHH open question

Why is VHHH open on the expert server? Isn’t it supposed to be LFTM

It could be open for training but that’s all I could add to this I’m sorry

When a hub is fully staffed (for example LTFM), IFATC may choose an airport around the world to control.

Radar services can open at a non-hub airport while the hub is fully staffed. Since radar frequencies must be open for at least one hour, the hour at LTFM(or Doha) could have been up but the officers at VHHH or Melbourne likely had longer to complete their hour. It’s just a weird timing thing that can lead to irregularities when there’s a schedule like today’s.

Also, it’s completely ATC choice when the hub is staffed. So we could open in Alaska, New Zealand, a Pacific island with no inbounds, really wherever if we see the hub is staffed.

Also, I’m adding to this that I assume controllers not authorized for radar are probably allowed to open anywhere once GTS is open at the hub, cuz otherwise they can’t controll at all until someone opens radar at the hub.
