Re: [30meterPSKGroup] Great Circle Maps
- Hi Daithi and All...
Here is another source for making a Great Circle Map...
I have been using this one for many years now (based on different locations
that is) and found it rather easy to do the deed.
Just scroll down to the "Making a map here on the server>Short Form>Enter
your QTH or just your Callsign in the Name of QTH>Enter Grid Square or
Latitude/Longitude (Its easier with Grid Sq)>The scroll down to "Continents
to include in map" and tick the box for "Whole World" or whatever you want
Now there is a "Long Form" which can generate alot more detail/information
but from a Joe Ham viewpoint the GCM serves the purpose well.
No harm in giving it a go.
