    With commercial antennas like jetvison or flightaware, installed on roof or mast, people have reported using gain as low as 25 dB.

    I use 30 and 35 for my two systems.

    Ok good to know.
    I currently have my gain at 36.4 for the last 24 hours I will have to check how it did, but I have gotten almost double the aircrafts seen so far, and went from about 25,000 positions reported to nearly 120,000!!!
    I need to run the gain script again I didn't have the time to do it yet. Do I really need to run it 10 times at 45 seconds for each gain?
    I was looking at the thread you had sent me, it looks like there is a way to change color of distance rings I may do alternating colors on mine!
