We activated nearly 100 new receivers during the first two weeks of December, extending our coverage area and increasing our MLAT coverage in a variety of locations.
We added receivers in Curaçao for the first time, extending our coverage in the south Caribbean and South America. We also added a receiver in Ho Chi Minh City increasing coverage there. New receivers in the Solomon Islands and Fiji will help with our Pacific coverage.
We also added new receivers in Azores, Iceland, and northern Scotland that will improve our MLAT coverage in those areas. In North America, our newly activated receivers have increased our coverage areas in portions of the United States and increased our MLAT coverage overall. We also increased our MLAT coverage in Europe, Brazil, Japan, and China.
Here’s the full map of all receivers activated during the first two weeks of December (click to enlarge).
We are 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 prefer to use your own hardware and have a Raspberry Pi you can now help us increase MLAT coverage as well. Please see our Raspberry Pi feeder page for more information and to begin feeding data today.
