The New QSL Mapper

One of the fun traditions of ham radio is sending a QSL card to another station to confirm a contact. To do that, you need the address of the receiving station. It's also interesting to find out how far away the QTH, (location), of the station actually was, and operating QRP with the Rockmite, I'm always curious about what the miles per watt number for the contact was as well.

The Copasetic Flow QSL mapper below shows all that information! Just enter your callsign, click 'Locate', then enter the callsign of the receiving station and click 'Locate' again. Both stations will be mapped and the distance between them and the watts per mile will be displayed!



You can install this gadget on your own iGoogle home page, or on any web page by using the installer from Google.

Not working for me ... I can see half of the Map/Satellite/Hybrid buttons but everything below that is blank.

Thanks for pointing that out Graham! The application has been fixed and now displays properly on IE as well. Due to Googles caching policies, the corrected version of the code may not show up for another six hours.

Don't know about a fix, but I'm using IE7 and when I enter the call signs and click locate, nothing happens.

Thanks for the info on IE7. I'm using it here and everything is working great. When you enter the call signs, do you see word 'Loading...' displayed? What call signs are you using? Do you have javascript enabled on your browser? Thanks again.

Very nice progarm. Keep up the good work. I'm sending all the NoGA QRP club over here to calculate their miles/watt now.
