I live in central/eastern NC and wondering if anybody makes a beam heading chart from my qth? Now this would be used as vhf simplex. I would need only few states that surrounds my state of NC. Like from my qth to Roanoke VA.
  Thanks, Don  NC4XX

NS6T maps work for me.  I use a world map, 4000k, 2000k and 1000k map to cover all the bases.  His program creates a pdf for you to print and is customizable. Get your lat x long from your QRZ page for the required input.

Remember these maps will show True North headings which is different from compass headings.

ChecK out W3KM's contest logger.  You store your 6 character grid square in the setup.  Then when you enter the call of the contact it grabs their 6 character grid square and gives you a pretty accurate heading. It's free.

Look anyone up on QRZ, click the 'details' tab and it will give you the heading.

NC4XX, are you referring to FM? I just made a new post trying to see who is on 2 meter FM simplex and what their setup is. You can let me know here, or see my new post and respond there.
