TDoA measurements using GPS time-stamped IQ samples from KiwiSDRs (8)

Today I picked up a HF radar signal on 13500+-20 kHz. These are the time-differences between four KiwiSDRs:
TDoA 13490 kHz

This is most likely the Calypso CODAR radar system:
TDoA maps for 14390 kHz
Within the TDoA resolution the three sites in Ta'Sopu (Gozo), Ta'Barkat (Malta) and Pozzallo Harbour (Sicily) cannot be distinguished.

It is still puzzling for me that the TDoA maps seem to provide reasonable results, as for now great-circle distances are used, i.e., delays due to skywave propagation are not taken into account.
