Clear skies and very busy here in the UK today (15 March) and at times today on both of my receivers (8 miles apart) down to 1 or 2 MLAT aircraft showing. Normally we would have 30-40 MLAT contacts during daylight hours. Is the system struggling because it is overloaded? I have noticed the MLAT coverage has slowly got worse here recently, not as good as it was 6 months ago

I have restarted PiAware on both units, but MLAT results are still poor and very intermittent and no signs of overheating

I hope this can be rectified soon


Thanks guys

MLAT looks ok here in Nottingham today - better than yesterday, in fact best MLAT data from the last week.
