Strange coverage

can somebody explain to me the following coverage:

And MLAT works too, so it’s not just entering fake coordinates:

How is it possible?

  1. An island in the ocean where no planes fly.
  2. Too much LNA gain

Incorrectly set receiver location.

If one incorrectly sets the location, how does MLAT work?

The screenshots don’t match any of your sites, so it’d just be guesswork unless you tell us what the site is.

Yes indeed, it’s not my site, it is one not far from me:

This looks like it’s actually a FlightFeeder bug where the receiver location is using the wrong value in some cases (but mlat had the right value, so that part worked fine). Should be (temporarily) fixed for now.

I understood.
Thanks for the quick response.
