Exclamation Screen Res and Radio contact bearing

Hey guys!
I'm using the LSH3 2015 GUI OLC mod and I want to try doing the 4-bearing targeting method.
The problem is, every radio contact has a tail that indicates the exact bearing of the ship.

Is it possible to remove the tail using this mod? Maybe a .tga image or a .cfg that can be modified?
(Screen res fixed after posting thread)

The tail does not show the bearing (to the target), it shows the reverse of the course.

Also, if they are radio reports then they are static and fade away after some time. They do not appear with any fixed regularity, and are likely random or intermittent intervals. So the 4-bearing method won't work for that. It is better to use hydrophone or visual bearings for that. (but with the later you can already track it, look at it's AOB)

And for training purposes that tail would be useful to verify how well you are doing it.

But yeah, there are ways to hide the tail. Already mentioned.
