EXCITING NEWS - NAOMI NOW A WINDOWS PROGRAM, AND FREE TO DOWNLOAD
NAOMI, the North American Overlay Mapper has been re-issued as a Windows
program. After much feedback from previous NAOMI users, I have completely
rebuilt the NAOMI map-suite, and integrated it into a Visual Basic shell for
ease of use and full Windows compatibility.
There's more good news: starting with the latest version v1.2, NAOMI is now
available for download completely free of charge. Get a FULLY WORKING copy
of NAOMI on your computer for as long as you wish to keep it. No
nag-screens, no adverts, nothing to go out of date, no need to do anything
else but use and enjoy the best North American Ham Radio Mapping system
