      Cool list! If you make it an object, click on it, then click on the dialog box that opens. In the box you can see the distance and direction from ME. It isn't a line with labels but the data is available.
      The station in Belfast Maine should be labeled B-ME. MA is Massachusetts.

      No, and define interval (of time?)

      Have fun! It was on an old FCC posting awhile back. Close enough for HFDF practice, but did not want to put out on APRS-IS, so was doing it offline.
