I've never had any problems indicated with either Kaspersky, AVG or No Script 
(Firefox plugin) at these sites.

Wouldn't you know it!   30M had been really popping the last month or two. 
Then, just as I announced the server returning to service, the sunspot count 
took a dive and most of the activity disappeared!  Hopefully, in the next few 
days, it will return.

(The day before my post, there were 7 stations on the east coast, 3 stations on 
the west coast and 4 or 5 in the US interior and 3 in Canada including a mobile 
in Saskatchewan showing!)

Actually not so.   It can produce simple outline maps with national boundaries 
showing and major cities marked as point objects anywhere in the world.  You 
get what looks like an elementary school map with each country a different 
pastel color in a simple Mercator-like  rectangular projection.  You can then 
over or underlay as much additional detail (vector or bitmap) from other 
sources in multiple layers as you wish.

See <http://wa8lmf.net/aprs/PMapEuroMapSamples>   for examples.
