Down in the lower right corner of the screen it indicates the age of the nexrad data. In the lower left it displays (IIRC):


Where # seems to vary between 0 and 2 or 3. I can't find in the manual what this number means. Can someone explain it?

# is the number of active targets being drawn on the screen this value will range from 0 to 32.

Another what does it mean question...actually, two questions. 1) the white target will sometimes go from a white outline to a filled in white square. What is it telling me? The second question is, the information cube (transparent) for each target will occasionally have a yellow outline, generally for very shourt time frames. What does this indicate?

We draw a yellow box around the traffic if we have not received an update in 10 seconds.
