I hardly ever saw a military 7700 squawk on FR24 for the several years I've used it. Now I'm getting at least a couple a week. In the past few months I've seen C-17s, KC-135s, T-38s, T-6s, F-35s, etc. You squawk 7700 when you declare an inflight emergency, the FAA defines that as a "distress or urgency situation."

At the bottom of your FR24 map page, click on the "alerts" icon on the bar at the bottom. "Squawk 7700" is near the bottom the "alerts" page that comes up. Push the slider bar button to the right, it will turn yellow to show the alert is activated.
