Support overload. We are currently seeing 65% more demand for support then we normally see. We can only assume this is because more people are at home due to the corona crises. Our complete support staff is online and they are working flat out, but it will take some days before we can scale up resources. Please be patient.

A320 Weather Radar

Recommended Posts

More of a curiosity than a problem - the rendering of the weather radar varies depending on whether it is set to manual vs. automatic for a given tilt setting.  Is there a reason or mechanic behind this?

 

(Frankly, I think the "manual" looks better!)

 

Examples:

 

Automatic:

Manual:

...and a nice comparison as the update sweeps across after changing the setting:

I believe that it's because in AUTO mode the weather radar is scanning multiple altitudes with high beam and low beam which is then combined into one picture giving a less accurate picture rendering by painting larger area. In MANUAL mode you are directing single beam with the tilt selected which should give a bit more accurate view with some graininess as well.
