The same data we use to initially set up systems in the DB, is the FCC location official data. Which is the exact same data that MUST be submitted to the FAA so that they have full knowledge of where a HUGE antenna tower is at so that aircraft can be advised. And I can tell you from experience,.. That data is shown to be very off as we get tons of submitted corrections for radio systems for the GPS coordinates. We admins have been working for at least 4 years now on getting the right GPS data set up. And when your dealing with thousands of radio systems, it can get interesting to say the least. Not to mention the FAA has been redoing a lot of airports for GPS and even slight numerical changes on runways as things have shifted on the surface of this planet since original building of a few airports.I seriously doubt the FAA is putting out bad data. It’s this same data that is input into the databases used by pilots in their on-board GPS systems! And having used it myself, I can tell you it’s quite accurate.

But anyway, with our DB, we can only list what we get. So if you give us new good data, we can work with it.
