It enables you to scan for available networks and create profiles for your preferred networks. You can drag and drop your preferred networks to arrange the profile priority.

WiFi Radar is tested to work with an Intel iwlagn 6300 on Slackware but should work just the same for any iwconfig interface. To use WiFi Radar you need to have the following:

March 9, 2014 - The WiFi Radar project is now hosted at TuxFamily. This move brings several changes to WR; including a new web address, a slimming of the mailing lists to a single list, and a new git repository.

The other good news is that this move has prompted me to begin active development, again, on WR.
