Scottish Highlands - 9th Feb
« on: February 09, 2008, 11:35:29 AM »
I'm up and running now in the far north of Scotland, on the Tarbatness peninsula right next to the Tain RAF bombing range.  We don't get a lot of air traffic up here, but here's a Saturday morning view as the transatlantic flights start to appear.

I'll typically be sharing flight data 24x7.

Note that I don't appear on the sharing map, as my IP address resolves to London.




And my radio setup:

Tarbat,

You've got cracking coverage there - I been watching "north of the border" since about 8.00 am and I guessed that it was you!

There are loads of people sharing this morning, especially across the whole of Europe :-)

Nice setup, yes its always busy with sharers on the weekend.

Guess your location to aircarft depends on what NATS are in use as sometimes they won't fly that North.

Yes, it means doing a polar diagram takes days (or even weeks)!  I sit here just hoping that an aircraft will take a different route and fill in the gap in my polar diagram.

Of course, the compensation is that I get a dozen RAF Tornados appear in my aircraft list as they practice high-level bombing of my house!

Great Screen Shots! What is the font type you are using on the aircraft labels? Looks very professional.

Font is just a standard Arial size 9.  I like to get my display looking just right, hence the high-res coastline and subdued colours!

That font size and type looks great. We will do some tests here with it. Keep us informed on news from your station.

This version has that! It's a matter of placing the proper outline files on the outline folder inside the application. Outlines are of same format as on our competition.

Have a look at the post below:

Like this you mean? This is EDDH Hamburg as created by me.



You can already do this with RadarBox.  See this thread:

There are sites on the web with lots of outlines to download. Have a look at:
http://www.homepages.mcb.net/bones/Kinetic/Kinetic_Utilities.htm

(you can use SBS outlines in RadarBox).
