Elon Musk’s SpaceX Falcon 9 lifted off from the Kennedy Space Center on 3 February 2022 at 18:13:20 UTC with 49 Starlink satellites to be deployed on mission Starlink 4-7. As the Falcon 9 was inclined towards the equator at approx 53 degrees, TI4JWC in Costa...
MH370 Flight Path

MH370 Flight Path

This MH370 flight path report provides the findings every two minutes during the entire flight of MH370 from 7th March 2014 16:42 UTC to 8th March 2014 00:20 UTC. The analysis used the Global Detection and Tracking of Any Aircraft Anywhere (GDTAAA) software...
MH370 GDTAAA Analysis

MH370 GDTAAA Analysis

The GDTAAA WSPRnet MH370 Analysis Preliminary Findings place the crash location at 33.177°S 95.300°E just 6 nm East of the 7th Arc. In the original report I incorrectly stated that the crash location was not included in the ATSB 2015 search area and only in the ATSB...
How Can WSPR Help Find MH370?

How Can WSPR Help Find MH370?

During the timeframe of the MH370 flight between 7th March 2014 16:00 TC and 8th March 2014 01:00 UTC there are 60,627 WSPR links over distances greater than 1,000 km, thanks to many dedicated radio amateurs world wide. There is an average of 224 WSPR links every two...
Maldives Aircraft Sighting

Maldives Aircraft Sighting

A number of eye witnesses on the island of Kuda Huvadhoo in the Maldives reported seeing a large low flying aircraft early in the morning of 8th March 2014. Blaine Gibson travelled to the island and interviewed the eye witnesses whose reports appeared credible....
AMSA MH370 SAR Flight

AMSA MH370 SAR Flight

Flight data kindly provided by the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) has been used to check what detections and tracking of aircraft are possible using GDTAAA and WSPRnet data in the southern Indian Ocean back in March 2014, when MH370 disappeared. This is the...
WSPRnet Propagation

WSPRnet Propagation

A WSPRnet Propagation Technical Analysis can be downloaded here The purpose of this technical analysis is to explain how the propagation of WSPRnet signals is used to track an aircraft. A worked example taken from the Qantas flight used in a recent blind test will be...
GDTAAA Blind Test

GDTAAA Blind Test

Mike Glynn, a former Qantas pilot, has set a new blind test for GDTAAA and the WSPRnet data. The departure was on 3rd June 2021 at 03:28 UTC (actually leaving the runway) at an approximate position of 13.830 °S 172.000 °W as this is not shown on ADS-B. The aircraft...
New Tracking Technology for MH370 Search

New Tracking Technology for MH370 Search

A new aircraft tracking technology is nearing readiness for the MH370 search. Significant progress has been achieved in refining a fascinating new technology, Weak Signal Propagation Reporter (WSPR), which is a digital radio communication protocol that is providing...
