Are you sure you’re reviewing the right list?  I personally test Gatwick and know for a fact the list is correct.   
 

what exactly do you disagree with?

I assume you are taking about @Pedantic G's master list. The list has Joe's stamp of approval so I'm sure it's correct. What is exactly missing/different from your version? 

I added to the list the airline codes and the names i can make out via the audio most of these airlines were not in the original list

You need to understand the differences between ICAO codes (used for the technical aspects of airline operations), IATA codes (used to identify an airline for commercial purposes), callsigns (with that I mean the telephony designators) and airline (or operator) names.

Using your first entry as an example:
"tcx Textrol KESTREL"

"TCX" is the ICAO code with the telephony designator "KESTREL". This entry is included below, with the IATA code "MT" and the airline name "Thomas Cook Airlines". The same applies to the other entries.

If you took a look at a flight ticket, you might see that it is for example for flight UA 419. UA (IATA) then stands for the operator (United Airlines) and 419 is the flight number.
An air traffic controller will most likely have UAL419 as callsign on his/her screen. UAL (ICAO) and 419 as flight identification number. (The flight identification may but does not have to match the flight number.)
ATC will then call the flight with the telephony designator (gernally referred to as callsign) + identification number. Here: UNITED 419

Thanks for clarification

Eligrim you're back!😮

Nope, not really.
Just downloaded the latest version of the RC Master List, saw this thread and thought: Well, why not?
