I am using Google Earth Pro with the addition of Maidenhead grid by OH2ECG.  Go to this site and follow the instructions to add grid squares to your Google Earth world map display: http://www.fsdt.fi/freeware/grid/

I just place a marker in a worked grid square and annotate it with the station call sign.  Here is an example:

Kg4RUL,
Thank you for the post.  Looks like what I was looking for.  It does take a lot of storage.  22gigs according to OH2ECG.  Thank again

Many active satellite operators use gcmwin to create and maintain their grid maps. I'd say it is the most popular option, by a long shot: http://www.papays.com/sat/gridmaps/gridmaps.html

An alternative method, often used in conjunction with the above method, is the ARRL VUCC 6m FFMA tracker by NZ3M: http://www.nz3m.com/FFMA.html
