    Hey gang,
    Anyone else experiencing DX Watch map loading issues? More times than not, the Google map seems to be loading incorrectly. I either get ""This page can't load Google Maps correctly" or the mas has a watermark that says "For development purposes only".
    Is there another sites that displays a map and spot info simultaneously? The ones I found either show a map of spots, or a list of spots, but DX Watch seems to be the only one with both.
    Thanks for your time!!

    I haven't tried the map but I am having trouble with their spot widget loading on my QRZ page.

    seems ok now, although I was not registered (waiting for email)
    I've seen this on other sites before. must be something google coders are doing - it usually doesnt last long

    I need to find something else to use for 2M - the vhf propagation map is down http://aprs.mountainlake.k12.mn.us/

    Response I received from DXMaps:

    "Hello,
    Sorry for the late reply!
    Recently google introduced some changes on the way they charge for the maps that we use at dxwatch.com, and it became so expensive that it is prohibitive to pay for it.
    Right now I am working hard on a new version of the site which will use another mapping solution. Hopefully it will be ready in a few weeks.

    Thank you for your comprehension!"
