August was a month of extreme latitudes and locations for our new receivers. In the first half of the month we went north as we added new receivers in northern Canada, Greenland, Norway, and Russia. In the latter half of the month, we moved south to South America. During August we activated 11 new receivers in Argentina alone, including one in Ushuaia, the world’s southernmost city.
We also spent the month of August adding other remote receivers, like one in Samoa and another in French Polynesia.
In addition to the remote receivers, we also increased our coverage area and improved our MLAT coverage in the central and southwest United States, Brazil, China, Japan, and southeast Australia.
Here’s the full map of all receivers activated during the month of August (click to enlarge).
We’re always looking for receiver hosts. Especially if you or someone you know lives in a remote location, please apply to host a receiver. All of our receiver hosts get a free Flightradar24 Premium account. If you’re interested, please apply today. If you’d you like more information about our application process, you can read more about it in our blog post.
If you have a Raspberry Pi you can now help us increase MLAT coverage as well. We are continuing to roll out our beta testing phase of MLAT based on Raspberry Pi receivers. If you’re interested, please visit our forum for instructions on how to begin feeding data.
