Here is a part of a message I got from a man named Ray Perkins. He built a
cool program that you can use to plot balloon launches (or any APRS object)
onto Google Earth.

Stan (and others),


I updated my TrackerGE software (version 6.0) on
http://web.295.ca/gpz550/TrackerGE/ to enable downloading the 96 hours of
stored data on Findu.com. (The new "History" button in the Internet



I put up a Google Earth plot I did (using the "History" function) of a
balloon flight (KC0MWM-11) on my web site. Try downloading it at:
http://web.295.ca/gpz550/TrackerGE/balloon.zip  Double-clicking the kml file
should open up Google Earth. It's a 3D plot, so turn "Terrain" on in


It's the best plot I've managed to get so far!

I know findu.com uses google maps for APRS.


What I would like to dabble with is google earth and aprs.


How do you make an auto reload kml file ? I am assuming that is what you do.
