There is a lot of information and misinformation about MH370, GDTAAA, and WSPRnet and any possible further underwater search in the media and from certain detractors.

In November Mr. Richard Godfrey announced that MH370 impacted the ocean 1,933km due west of Perth at 33.177°S 95.300°E and lies at a depth of 4,000m in a very mountainous area with deep ravines and a volcano.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 vanished during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014, before plunging into the southern Indian Ocean — taking 239 passengers and crew.

Mr. Godfrey has used a revolutionary technology called weak signal propagation, first revealed by AirlineRatings.com in April 2021, to track the plane’s final movements.


Now Mr. Godfrey has published an update on the facts surrounding MH370, GDTAAA, and WSPRnet. Here is his blog entry in full below the links.
