If real-time sorting is on by default, as it is in Kismet, you could
turn it off...that should at least give you a more stable display, where
you can just watch the same spot on the screen.

According to the man page there is no way to turn sort off.  I'll take a look into Kismet as an alternative.

Kismet seemed promising, but the signal reporting has too much lag to be of any use.  Any other ideas?
