And from a personal perspective, there are of number of locally based aircraft, especially helicopters,  that I would love to plot.

MLat works best for high-flying aircraft, simply because they can be picked up over a wider area and hence by potentially more MLat sharers.

Helicopters, which normally stay low, present more of a challenge and your success will depend on how many other local MLat-ers there are sharing on the network.

Yes - understood Dave.

Not too sure who I've got in the immediate vicinity. EMA and EGNX are likely suspects judging by their forum names  (unless they're one and the same) and I would expect one or two more.

We used to have a google map showing locations. Wonder what happened to it.

Hi Bratters

My location is north of Derby and I think EGNX's location is nearer to East Midlands Airport although I may be wrong.

A clue is the number of local images on my website.

Hi EMA - I'm about 15nm NE of East Mids not far from Langar airfield parachute school. A fourth Leicester-ish and the area would be well covered.

Bring on the Mlat Airnav.

There are more than four of us in this area :-)

the ground stations picking up the aircraft also all need to be picking up a reference ADS-B aircraft for synchronisation.

Thanks.  A light just came on.
