Adrian this is perfect! I see it uses ADIF log file formats. What do you recommend for log program to use with it for SATS? I don't see any direct entry method. Thanks!

Check out GcmWin (Great Circle Maps) from Roger, SM3GSJ at URL http://www.qsl.net/sm3gsj/index.htm.%C2%A0 This is not exactly what you are looking for, but it does a good job of plotting your grid squares on a map. It can plot from two different grid square lists as well, so you can highlight confirmed vs. worked grids, for example, in different colors or shades. It does have the capability of adding boundaries--so state outlines could be added, but so far no support for shading in the boundaries as far as I know.

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII" Been having lots of fun with new rooftop sat antennas. What I would like to do is attempt to work all states via AO-51, but I am struggling with a good layout to keep myself motivated. Does anyone know of a logging program I could display on a flat screen specific to sats? Here is my thought: A google maps overlay that has states and gridsquares on it (does this exist today as overlays for Google Earth maybe?) Then Iog my sat contacts on AO-51 into a logging program (LOTW or something else). Then it gives me an output overlay for Google so I can see all states and gridsquares worked. It would be great if it could color in the states I have worked and/or the grids I have worked on zoomin. Well, I know it is a lot to ask and maybe it has to be designed, but it certainly sounded interesting to me. It would really be nice when scouts or family come over to show them the states I have worked on AO-51 and/or others in a visual display. Thanks for any ideas or any pointers into anything close or at least a good sat logging program that maybe I can export a file to utilize in Google Earth to make a KMZ out of or something.
