Charlie, this sounds like an excellent solution - potentially much less
involved than the old way of using MicroDem and the USGS website. If
you can provide a few more details, I'll be glad to write it up, and I'd
bet that N6BV and the ARRL will be interested in making it available on
the ARRL web-site. Dean and I wrote most of the old instructions you'll
find, but it always was a PITA because USGS kept changing their web-site.
