Didn't know there were that many Mic-E users in Portugal.   Now there 
are 7 "invaders" in eastern Colorado!

Here is a screen shot from APRSpoint - an APRS client that directly uses 
local MapPoint maps, either North America or Europe.     This 
application is actually a plugin that runs inside MapPoint itself -- the 
normal functionality of MapPoint (address lookups, route planning, etc) 
remains while APRSpoint is running. 

One nice feature of APRSpoint is that it can draw track lines for 
selected stations without add-ons.  I set it to track CT1EIZ-9 .  I 
suspect the track line shown will correspond perfectly to some major 
road in Portugal.  

Here is the same view from UIview with Precision Mapping 7.0:
