This app will *not* make a weather forecast *nor* will it track your flight.
It *will* display raw radar data from NOAA on an "old-style" radar screen with the rotating ray highlighting echos as it goes by. It will display ADS-B data for airplanes above.
If you know 4-letter designations and locations of NOAA radars around you - this app is for you!
If you are familiar with different radar products, such as base reflectivity and base velocity; spectrum width, correlation coefficient and differential phase - this app is for you!
If you know what a Software Defined Radio is, you can receive and display ADS-B aircraft data on a retro-style radar screen - you will love this app!
If you are a weather geek and/or an aircraft nerd - this app is for you!
This is a free app. No support, no user manual exists for it. It was not designed to be suited for any particular purpose or goal.
You, however, will have fun figuring out all the features of the app and how to use them to extract information you need. You will have fun matching airplanes on screen and in the air above.

This app does not collect, store, share or use any user information.
