If by "chart" you mean a table of beam headings to all the prefixes,
several programs such as MiniProp, DXBASE, etc. will do that. However,
if what you want is a program that draws a great circle MAP centered on
any QTH, I have not found one that runs under DOS.
The best ham map software is Geoclock. It comes with a custom equidistant-
azimuthal map centered on your QTH. Nothing beats seeing the gray line
plotted in real time on a great circle map. You see immediately how much
of your signal is passing through light, dark, and gray. A bargain at
