I contacted the Development team who has advised me that following me raising the issue they have discovered a performance issue on some of the MLAT servers which they are now resolving.  Should take 1 to 2 hours to resolve

Oh Brilliant. I didn't get that far as I'd assumed that it must be a config issue? As when I was just feeding RB it was fine but as soon as I went FA/PA to RB it failed. was quite surprised when FR, OS & ADSX were working fine.

I'll keep my fingers crossed and keep my eyes on it during the evening.

I have no idea, like you  I am only a user and I have no idea if it will resolve your specific issue

Funnily enough, my FA/PA MLAT is glitching tonight. Going up and down like RB.  My status on ADSX seems to be fairly constant.

I know it needs at least three receivers, but RB (when its working) gets 90-100, FA/PA 230? That bit doesn't seem to be a problem!

You will be seeing a huge reduction in traffic there, I am seeing even less here in central Scotland

Tell me about it! Although quite enjoying sitting on the flight path of the vaccine run between Brize and Preswick!

Actually why I'd like to get MLAT up and running as a fair amount of low level military (one which squark and ones that don't) and Air Ambulance passes me.

RB MLAT hasn't stabilised yet, still disconnecting. FA/PA (320 stations last time i looked) doing it every hour or so.

Not seeing any difference in my MLAT station reports, still going from no stations sync to 100's of synced stations!

There is an ongoing issue with RB at this time I am unable to get online and I have not been able to contact the developers due to this.  There has been a server migration taking place with some stability issues now but work is ongoing to smooth out the issue.  I dont know how this will be affecting your issue

Mine hasn't stabalised fully. Both FA/PA & RB, everytime I loose aircraft it drops connection and resyncs. RB has just come back up for me so I'll see whar happens.

Update : It's gone back to how it was previsouly, which is a shame as it had been fairly stable most of the day. Maybe they rolled back the changes they made yesterday?

Hi,

I asked the support because of my MLAT problem and got a answer but I´m afraid to break my configuration:

Code: [Select]
## Installed required packages (dependencies and build tools)
sudo apt update -y
sudo apt-get install -y git curl build-essential debhelper python-dev python3-dev
 
## Downloaded source code
cd /home/pi/
git clone https://github.com/mutability/mlat-client.git
 
## Built mlat-client's installation package
cd /home/pi/mlat-client
sudo dpkg-buildpackage -b -uc
 
## Above command took some time to build package
## After the package was built, installed it by following command
cd /home/pi/
sudo dpkg -i mlat-client_*.deb

I don't see how that's any different to the version already installed? I checked the version I had and it was already the latest mutability build?

Happy to give it a go...

report back soon.


UPDATE: no change stayed sync'd for about 5m then dropped with the same error in the log. I havd at least 5 aircraft the whole time.

Is that why I've been seeing & hearing a lot more A400M than usual flying past my house @10k feet these past few days?
