  • Google Earth .kml Issue

    Hello all. When I right click on a log book entry and perform a Google Earth lookup a window dialog box pops up and asks me to save the .kml file, in lieu of opening Google Earth and showing me the contacts location and Sat image. Any help or suggestions to fix this issue would be greatly appreciated. Happy Holidays.

    Sorry, I do not see that issue so I suggest you open a ticket for it.

      Thanks John. I got HRD to use Google Earth. For others in Windows 10 simply open settings, apps, default apps, choose default apps by file type. Then find kml and associate with Google Earth. Strange tried this a few times before I posted and Google Earth was not an option but it showed up today, Now I have a new problem. Google Earth opens but it views a spot in the middle of the Atlantic. Again any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

        Have you entered your Home locator into the Mapper options?
        If there is no locator data that is what you will see.

          Thanks, not sure where mapper is located in HRD, I'll look for it. This only happens with DX contacts; in North America GE works great.

            Sorry. I had a Senior moment. This has nothing to do with Mapper.
            Showing a station in the Atlantic used to be a problem with Google Earth lookups but that was fixed I am sure.
            I have just tried it and see no problems.
            What station are you using for this and what version of HRD?

              John, I'm using Ham Radio Deluxe v6.4.0.907 via CIV connection. Also, I'm using GE pro. Again I only have the problem with DX Contacts.

                Are the stations you have logged showing their Locator in the ALE? If not, that is your problem.

                  John,

                  Thanks for the response and the help. I'll check the locator and advise.

                    John,

                    Yes they show all the needed locator information. Now when I perform the the GE look up it shows the directional path line and if I mouse to the end of the path and zoom in it It takes me to the contacts location. So I can certainly live with this. For North American contacts GE takes me directly to the contact location and zooms in automatically. Strange it used to do this for all contacts but stopped when I believe GE changed to GE Pro. Anyway must be some bug with Pro. Thanks again for taking the time to help, its much appreciated.

                      I am pleased to have helped to ease your frustration. There are so many variables at work that it is a miracle we get anything out that makes sense.
                      Happy New Year.
