  • Stations not plotting correctly in Google Earth, when taken from My Logbook

    Not sure if this is the place to post this, but will go ahead anyways. When using HRD Logbook, I discovered a feature I did not know it had. If you select an entry/entries in your Logbook you can display their location in Google Earth. I found 2 ways to get to the Google Earth; 1 was thru the More and selecting it and the other was thru Logbook/Lookup/Google Earth. This is nice in that you can check your antennas performance in various directions. When I made my selection, I had a number of entries that were plotted in the wrong location (such as the middle of the ocean). Thinking that the grid square may be incorrect, I corrected a number of them, but the plots did not change. My question is what does Logbook give to Google Earth to determine the plot??

    I had never tried this feature prior to your post. But since your post, I have tried it 30 or 40 times and it has worked perfectly every time. Sometimes looking up just one contact and sometimes several. I know that's not much help. I'm using HRD ver 199 on a Windows 10 machine.

        There is another cool feature in HRD you may not have tried.
        Open Mapper from Rig Control and click on Stations/HRD Logbook Query.
        Select a .mdb database and make sure the dates/bands/modes are correct. Click on Apply.
        This is part of my Logbook

          The Mapper has never worked for me since I don't use an Access database.

            I have had a Mantis request open for MySQL databases to be used as well for sometime. Hopefully soon.
