Aircraft Trails Mod

I just started using Virtual Radar server a few days ago, I went as far as buying the rtl-sdr blog LNA - works great!

Is there a way to show dots on the map instead of a line or "trail"? I want to see when there is a loss of signal while the plane is in the air. This will help me understand my antenna pattern and radio propagation. Each dot will represent a data point.

Sorry for the late reply. I'm afraid that you can't do that at the moment, but I like the idea. I'm not sure what it would look like though. If it's just a bunch of dots and you turn it on for all aircraft then you're going to get a mess of dots. Then again, if you're looking for holes in coverage then that's not a bad thing. But those dots... they can't be polylines like the current trails, I think they'll need to be markers. That could be an awful lot of markers... hundreds, maybe thousands of them.
