Hello.
Antenna height must be provided in meters, above sea level.

STEP-2: Edit file /etc/rbfeeder.ini, and ADD lines shown in RED to enable mlat
Note:
Use actual values in place of:
xx.xxxxxx (latitude)
yy.yyyyyy (longitude)
zzz  (antenna height, in meters, above sea level)

It is above sea level in feet or meters depending on what you use on RB
