You can't draw a crow's fly from your home to a tower on a map.

Moreover, you can't use other sites to draw the line because the address of the tower on a map is not listed. Just the name!

Then, when you finally Google for particular towers address, and you use a third party site to draw the line, it does not let you adjust the marker to put it on your roof where your actual antenna is. Even entering longitude and latitude does not help.

So you need to open a screen print in photoshop, copy the line to a new layer and then move it to desired spot to see which landmark in surrounding area the line points to, to see where to point the antenna.

In conclusion. Would there be any chance the designers of the site added an adjustable crows fly line layer to their map?

And possibly a choice to remove the coverage mask which redraws slowly, hampers the use of the map and is important from service providers perspective and not from user perspective.

I understand the sponsor of the site is the provider of the service but please don't let it beat the purpose.
