I am curious if there is any recommended software where one can track QSO's from your home station?  I have seen at times maps with contacts from a ham's home station with lines drawn and leading to a contact' station across the United States and the world and I was wonder if this is a software program or if you have to create a world map and manually connect the contact points? 

Thanks;
Mike

You could do it with Google Maps. You need a free account, and you can create custom maps with push pins on it. They also have a "measuring tool" that can be used to measure from one point to the other.

If I understand your question correctly, QRZ.COM has this feature, on line.

Register/login into QRZ.COM
Enter callsign of station you want to map to (upper left hand side, search - by callsign)
click "detail" (beside biography)
click "show map", produces map, +/- zoom in/out
bearing, distance, etc info from login call sign along left hand side

DXLab can plot your logged QSOs on its built-in world map, on Google Earth, or on DX Atlas. It's free, and available here. Reviews are here.

Most good Logging software will do this. I presently use LOG4OM. It has it's own map and also integrates your Q's with Google Earth if desired.

Unlike ancient, hard to use "so yesterday"loggers like Dxlabs, Log4OM has a modern easy to use Windows interface. Log4OM is free, well supported and constantly improved: http://www.log4om.com/
