Alternate WSPR display map

The WSPRnet map is great but it hasn't been updated to Google Maps v3 so I've started working on my own version here.


Currently I'm scraping the spots from the WSPRnet database display page every ten minutes but I'd love to work with whoever is responsible to make this a bit more efficient.

I've done more work on the map and now it emulates the official map in that you can click on a marker to see who they're hearing and who's hearing them.


Let me know if you see any bugs.

Hello dear Peter ... this sounds very interessting. Everytime I "whisper" I`m a little bit disappointed about the poor features of the origin wspr page. I thought about doing the same like you but was not sure if using the database results of the wspr page is accepted by wsprnet.org. Why is your wspr-page down ? Will it be accessible again ?

Hello DF5FH, no that server is long gone. These days I have an iOS app called WSPR Watch that does something similar.
