[aprssig] APRS and google earth

I managed to get google earth to work with my linux box which produces a
.kml file that is used by google earth to place an icon on a map

What I intend to do now is get linux and perl to ask findu.com where a
station is and create a live kml file.

Google earth zooms in and "tracks" the object

Example

Sample .kml file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<kml xmlns="http://earth.google.com/kml/2.0">
