    The forum article http://forum.virtualradarserver.co.u....php?f=1&t=353 states very clearly this behaviour:
    The receiver range is reset whenever you start VRS, or when you change server options that affect the plot (e.g. you change the receiver location), or when you use one of the menu options on the server to reset the receiver range plot. It is not stored anywhere, so you need to wait a while before it can give you a reasonable idea of your receiver's range.

    Plane routes here change at different times of the day and wind direction. To get a fairly accurate idea of range when I test the performance of a new antenna, I requires to run it for 24 hrs+, preferably several days. Since I do not run my computer 24/7, I need software to save data for each few hours run, and start from there when restarted. adsbScope is perfect for this type of intermittent use as it saves the range data on exit.

    why not just leave the pc on for a day? looks like what you want isn't possible with vrs :-(

    how about doing daily screen grabs, then paste them together as layers in a graphic package.

    My wife does not like our electricity bill & computer/laptop repair bill. After last computer repairs, she issued a Presidential decree that if computer is found running without anybody using it, it will be immediately shutdown. "using" means someone physically sitting in front of computer and playing with mouse/keyboard. Unattended Data feeding & range plotting do no fall under her definition of "using".

    Try SBSplotter, it saves the range (if you use auto save, otherwise you have to save it manually).

    To view on Google Earth or Maps, follow the instructions to create a kml.

    Edit: It helps to read the next page, didn't notice someone also suggested the same blog.

    Thanks for advise and useful link. It is perfectly ok if two persons give same information or advise.
