Post Maidenhead locator map?
Is it still possible to buy a map with the little squares on? Im starting to find collecting them on 2m quite fun again.

Good logging programmes often have inbuilt mapping, VqLog, for instance, that I use provides masses of info.

This might do, to get you started. http://www.amt.org/Reference/Grid%20Maps/EUROPE.gif

Collecting squares, usually, only involves to four digits.
Like this.

I have a IARU Locator of western europe map, that has the smaller squares it is
3foot wide by 4 foot high. Not sure if they are still available.

Think i bought it of the RSGB book stall at a rally.

Must be your lucky day, just found a spare, thats never been marked....
If you want it, its yours.

I've still got one of those.
A bit unwieldy, and difficult to find a space for.

Cheers

I though that was something for wet weather.

I have a new mini on my desk, it and its keyboard prevent dust landing on the desk under it, I don't know what other purpose it serves.

You're right though, it won't run without CrossOver, or using Parallels or fusion or similar installation. More of a problem than using Wine on Linux.
