    I think I should use the search function for the forum more and Google less. Thank you, abcd567

    Well, the search funtion in FR24 forum is not very good. I have to use [my memory+ forum search].

    Another read of interest is linked below. It is an "aid to gain setting". As you have already installed graphs, this is not of much practical use for you, but definitely very useful for those who dont have graphs.

    How-to Add "Received Signal Strength Indicator" (RSSI) Column in Aircraft Table of dump1090-mutability ver 1.15~dev

    .

    You can use Google to search a specific site and it works very well. I forget the syntax at the moment, you'll have to Google it :-)

    Unfortunately if you put in .vn Viet or escorts you get to see all the dodgy urls SEO spammers add to their profiles.

    I just knew that there were at least a couple of people that couldn't resist posting :-)

    Forum has a minimum 4 char requirement. And - between reg is unfortunately 'ignore' which makes it hard.

    For Google search of key words in the FR24 forum, you have to enclose search keywords in quotes like this:

    Site:forum.flightradar24.com "about agc"

    Site:forum.flightradar24.com "rssi column"

    Lots more good stuff

    I've added the rssi column to my Dump1090 map and that seems to work very well, so thank you for that. Previoulsy I only got the rssi information on the target I clicked on.

    I do like the look of the embedded gain button (it's another gadgety thing) and I'm getting quite good at monkey see, monkey do (I even managed to save the changes to the files even though not specifically instructed to. That's not a criticism because to most it would be obvious but I did wonder if it was all done magically at the end but decided it wasn't and used the steps in the other 'how to' guides I've used to save everything).

    Anyway, the only question I have at the moment is how to discover if I have Jessie or Stretch. I'm 99.9% certain I have Stretch, as my Pi is very new and I only loaded Raspbian etc a few days ago but I just wondered if there is a way I can check.

    Edited to add: sorry, ignore that. Google to the rescue again

    To find which distro (jessie or stretch or something else) you have:

    Code:
    cat /etc/os-release
