    MLAT will go live in Australia later today.
    Coverage is still quite bad, with best coverage around Brisbane.
    Perth should get another receiver this week that should help showing all departing and arriving MH370 search aircraft.

    Other regions will follow. Right now 8 receivers are in shipping to Australia.
    Hi Mike, Re the 8 heading to Australia, can you tell us where they are heading to? I have some friends in Coffs Harbour and in Armidale region that would be candidates for hosting. I'd planned on mentioning it to them soon.
    I think M-LAT on the east coast just got better with my antenna finally being placed higher. Great work you guys are doing and I'm happy to help.

    Here is the current MLAT situation in Australia.

    All "3" are MLAT enabled units.
    "I" are old NON-MLAT FR24 receivers.
    "A" are FR24 receivers without MLAT enabled.
    Blue will be shipped next weekend.

    Are "1"s Radarcapes that might be upgraded?

    Would any upgrade be hard - a new thing or swap, or software?

    I've completed the second step in the application. Took longer to get the information needed, been a busy week and the weather has been rather poor to get photographs [only had a one day window for sunny weather]. Just because I've put it in, doesn't mean I'll be successful but one has to try.

    One thing I forgot to put on the application was that the photographs were taken ~1 metre below the antenna height, was unable to get a the view from the antenna.

    How close can receivers be to make MLAT work? Is, say, 2km too close?

    Something quite odd and rare is happening now at Schiphol.
    Aircraft are landing on 18C AND 36R. Departures are from 09.

    METAR: EHAM 020525Z 35001KT 2500 BR NSC 07/06 Q1008 NOSIG
    The wind is 1 knot, so that's why it is possible. It's misty as well.

    MLAT north, south, west and east from the airport is working perfectly. Very low positions are reported and you can follow the aircraft almost down to on the runway.

    FR24: Thanks a lot and good job. Really enjoying this!

    More MLAT fun:

    Briefly spotted one of the RAAF's Wedgetails flying west from SA - probably to MH370 search area. First plane I've seen on MLAT over SA. wedge1.jpg
