We activated nearly 100 new receivers in the first two weeks of October, improving our coverage all over the world. In South America, we grew our coverage area in Chile and Argentina with the three new receivers south of Buenos Aires and four new receivers in Brazil. In North America we grew our coverage area in the western half of the United States. In September, we added a new receiver on Greenland’s east coast and during the past two weeks we activated a new receiver on the west coast, expanding our transatlantic coverage.
We also added new receivers in Queensland, Australia, and Tauranga, New Zealand, increasing our coverage in those locations. In China, we added new receivers to increase our MLAT coverage and expand our coverage area in the north and west of the country.
Also of note are the two new receivers in Iran and new receiver in Iraq.
Here’s the full map of all receivers activated during the first two weeks of October (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 inour 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 software feeder guide for more information and to begin feeding data today.
