Hello Joseph,

as far as I can see there are very few stations active in Africa and around. All of them seem to be listed on the Europe page of LMO. There is one each in Malawi, Namibia and South Africa and there are four stations east of Africa in La Reunion. Two are north west of Africa on Spanish and Portuguese islands. Too less stations for a dedicated region. Minimum 11 stations have to send matching signals to detect a stroke.

When new detectors are available, interested parties in poorly covered regions are supplied first.
