closestAircraft.json not showing MLAT aircraft

Post by SingingDwarf »

Is there a particular reason that closestAircraft.json does not show aircraft derived from MLAT?

I am using this file to display the closest aircraft to my position on a custom dashboard (Organizr) but it only includes ADS-B craft and not the light aircraft/army helicopters that buzz my house which only transmit Mode-S and whose positions are derived using MLAT.

Do I have a setting incorrectly defined somewhere, or does the feed only include ADS-B aircraft intentionally?

Found the answer.

In WebAdmin, select Options > Receivers > Closest aircraft receiver and choose the receiver (or combined feed) that the closestAircraft.json should be constructed from.

I found the answer in https://www.virtualradarserver.co.uk/Do ... tions.aspx
