The US map is just a screen captured map from MacAPRS, but the system  
works with any fixed or dynamic geo map you want to throw at it  
(click on the world map link for an example). The propagation lines  
are drawn with my own great-circle code, which still has a flaw, so  
the paths aren't exact, but are closer than a straight line.
