    it is the fourth line of the menu It has a submenu and you indicate first all altitudes or something like that (I have a German menu here)

    You are at the wrong place.
    Not the "options" from the menu, but three lines below the "receiver range", just above "shortcuts".

    I found it now I had to set the location in the receiver i thought id done that.
    Its now plotting for me. That took some doing as the longitude and latitude is different to what i know.

    @bruton:
    This looks great. You have crossed the 9th (outermost) ring at many places. What is the gap between rings/ how far is the outermost ring from receiver?

    I have set 6 rings 50 Nautical Miles apart, so my outermost ring is 300 Nautical Miles from receiver.
    (300 Nautical Miles = 345 Miles = 555 Kilometre**)

    **In UK English, Canadian English, and French, the spelling is "kilometre". In US English, German, Swedish & Dutch, the spelling is "kilometer".

    @bruton:
    Your outermost ring is 9 x 20 = 180 nm. Your max range is somewhat beyond outer ring, so it can be safely taken as 200 nm = 230 miles = 370 km. Very good for an antenna in loft.

    You will see considerable improvement when you take your antenna outdoor on your roof or a mast.

    Adding an amplifier will greatly enhance range & number of planes, both for antenna in loft and antenna on roof.
