Hi Andrew,

Not sure if this is any help.

  Subject: [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



  Sample .kml file 

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