Several years ago I started posting grid maps on my
website so that grid chasers and grid expeditioners
could get an idea of what was needed by active satellite
operators.  However, some of these maps have not been
updated in quite a while.  And there are many new grid
chasers that have not submitted their maps for posting.

If you have a map that is currently posted and has not
been updated recently please send me an updated map(s)
or just send me a text file of the grids you have confirmed,
one 4 character grid square per line And another text file
of grids you have worked but are not yet confirmed using
the same format of one grid per line.  I will generate the
maps from these files and you can download and print the
resulting map that will be posted.

If you have never submitted a map, please consider doing so.
Knowing who has what is very helpful to potential grid
expeditioners and it is a nice way to keep track of what you
need and where that grid is located with respect to grids
you already have.  It's a lot easier for someone in a grid
adjacent to one you need to go there compared to someone who
might live hundreds of miles away doing the same.  If you
send me your grid lists as specified above, I will generate
the maps for you.

Here's a list maps on my website and the date they were updated:
