This page loads a lot of images, please be patient, especially if on dial-up connections.

Position reports provided by servers at: Googlefindu.com, and WinLink.org
Search scripts below were adapted from Steve Dimse, K4HG's findu.com cgi page.

Some Canadian locations will have the photos/maps available even though it states US only! Radar maps will appear if within range of an US NWS NEXRAD radar station.

NOTE:  Depending on the state of the internet and of the APRS Severs, position reports may be some time behind real time reporting as seen over the airwaves.  Depending on individual station setup parameters, the station may not be seen by the APRS server, or if the station is closed down (mobile/base) it will not be seen after a set time. Mobile stations may not be in range of another APRS station to rebroadcast their position reports.
