Now with latitude/longitude grids!

I added a new feature to the azimuthal map program to give people the option to add a latitude/longitude grid and Maidenhead grid square labels. This turned out to require an adventure in the world of cubic spline interpolation, but that’s a story for another time. These new features are turned off by default because the map is already pretty dense with information.

Point your antennas to CM97bp (Jamboree on the Air)

In celebration of Boy Scouts of America’s 100th anniversary, Northern California BSA is having a jamboree, and East Bay hams are putting on a jamboree on the air (JOTA) station to give scouts a chance to get on the air.  The station call sign is WZ6BSA, and it should be accessible via HF, VHF (including IRLP), and satellite (when visible from CM97bp). You can get more information here. I am going to be the HF control operator 9am-1pm PDT tomorrow.
