    Here’s an excellent way to help grow the Nashua Area Radio Society — Recruit your Neighbors. Thanks to the efforts of Ross, KT1F, of Wilton NH, you can quickly find your ham neighbors. Visit them, introduce yourself, and start a conversation. Invite them to visit your shack! And be sure to invite them to visit our website and attend our meetings!

    DETAILS:

    Here’s a little project I’ve been working on. If you’re in a New England state, type in your callsign and see your ham neighbors on a map.

    More states are coming, slowly. At the free Google geocode limit of 2500 per day it will take most of the rest of the year to do the whole country. I don’t know how useful it is but it’s been an excuse to play with Google Maps, the Haversine formula etc. I know something similar has been done elsewhere like here on qrz.com https://www.qrz.com/gridmapper but I didn’t realize that when I started and so be it, there is room for all.

    I will add grid squares and maybe the ability to center on any address in the next few weeks (after tax return!).

    Layne,

    Very neat tool! I didn’t realize there were other hams on the streets right next to me. I plan on going antenna hunting this weekend to see if I can catch anyone outside!
