This program takes a ham radio log in various formats (ADIF, Cabrillo, SOTA Activator / Chaser), tries to determine the location of the contacts and displays the result on Google Maps, using the following infomation:
- the SOTA summit reference from ADIF ("<sota_ref>") and the SOTA logs
- the latitude/longitude from ADIF ("<lat>", "<lon>")
- the Maidenhead Locator from ADIF ("<gridsquare>")
- the location provided by QRZ.com for the callsign (callsigns without prefix/suffix only)
- Open your log file in Notepad or another editor (NOT a word processor like Word)
- Select the lines you want to show on map
- Copy them to the clipboard (ctrl-c or right-click, copy)
- Paste them (ctrl-v or right-click, paste) in the text box below
- click "Submit"
Demos and sample logs are available here.
You can share the link to the map with others (mail, forums, "reflectors", social networks, etc.). The link will work at least 6 months after it has been last viewed.

You might wish to find errors in your SOTA logs using the SOTA callsigns checker before generating a map of your contacts.
