Can someone clarify why if you plot a route on Sky Demon going anticlockwise (i.e. initially west) from Elstree EGTR to Fairoaks EGTF and outside the London CTR  then under the Sky Demon Radio tab it lists the out of range Farnborough Radar (East) LARS as a "Frequencies Now" and doesn't actually show either as a "Frequencies Now" nor even a "Frequencies Next" the relevant LARS being  Farnborough Radar (North) LARS or Farnborough Radar (West) LARS.

As a test I just plotted a route from Main Hall Farm (N of London) to Popham (W of London), but am actually west of Guildford (on the ground). Farnborough W shows in the "Frequencies Now" bit.
So perhaps it relies on where you are currently located?

The Radio tab is not like the PLOG. It doesn't know or care about your planned route. It only shows the frequencies you can use right now, and in the next ten minutes of your journey (where you are directly pointing).

Thanks Tim.. that now makes sense as I was at home in north London at the time.
