  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 

  http://vk4tec.no-ip.org/aprs_earth.JPG

  Sample .kml file 

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

    <styleUrl>root://styleMaps#default+nicon=0x307+hicon=0x317</styleUrl>
    <Style>
      <IconStyle>
        <Icon>
          <href>root://icons/palette-4.png</href>

          <w>32</w>
          <h>32</h>
        </Icon>

  </kml>
