Re: [aprsisce] Program used with Search and Rescue
- Yes Lynn,
I think that was where I said 'simple crosshairs will do'.
I like the scale '1,2,5,10,20',
if you zoom out it becomes '2,5,10,20,50',
zoom in '0.5,1,2,5,10'.
Of course you would need to have the size of one circle defined somewhere on screen (I know you hate taking up valueable screen real estate).
The configurable bit would be how many circles to display,
personally I would only like to see complete range circles and decide how small the smallest should be on screen.
But until I see it on screen & have a play I wouldn't like to say.
And of course I did say 'simple crosshairs will do'.

- Hi Lynn,
These are two examples of range rings. This software produces five rings at
whatever range the user selects.
There is already a crosshair option that can be turned on. I don't know if
that is only in the development version or not.
