New WSPR map

In case you didn’t know about it already, check out this new map of recent WSPR spots. (Editor’s note: please be advised that we have had a report of this link freezing a computer and requiring a reboot. I do not believe that it’s a malicious link, but it may be very resource intensive to load…)

It’s much faster than the ‘official’ one, which could bring Firefox to its knees on a slow computer. And it remembers allyour preferences including zoom level. A must-bookmark, if you’re a WSPR fan.

    Julian – that is really neat, thanks for telling us about

  • Joe KB3PHL:

    What ever you do DON’T click on the link to this webpage. When I did it locked up my computer so bad that I had to cold reboot twice just to get it back to normal. Someones STUPID idea of a April fools joke I think. CLICK AT YOUR OWN RISK !

  • Matt W1MST:

    I tried the link and didn’t have any problem, though the layering on the Google Map seemed to use a lot of resources. I suspect that it might not work well on all hardware/software configurations, especially those that may older to start with.

    I have added a note with the link that some people have had problems with it, and to click at your own risk.

    Works fine here and is very fast.

    It does initially open up with all the frequencies clicked so if you have an older computer and there is a lot of activity that may cause some delay.(3GHz & 8GB memory here)
