Is there a way to dump the logbook grid squares into a graphical map (like a coverall bingo card)?
It can be done manually using DXAtlas.
This software looks like it will actually look at the asci file and extrct the grids for mapping, i haven't used it however.
Check out this lotw / grid mapper web site.
Tried it - not even close, at least not for me. I have thousands of confirmed LoTW contacts, with ARRL DXCC, WAS, Triple Play, WAC and yet it shows that I've worked just a handful of locations. Doesn't even come close to my actual LoTW log record.
Not buying that one
Didn't work for me either.
Remember that GridMapper DOES NOT display all your QSOs, it only displays the GRIDS you have worked, regardless if you have one or one hundred contacts in that grid. The color of the grid does vary with the number of confirmed contacts. The plot below is my ~7,500 QSOs confirmed in LoTW for all of 2018.
yeah, no, didn't work for me either, not even remotely close.
I've used gcmwin as well as FFMA-TRACKER-MAP
In a quick search, just saw there is a WG7J gridmapper as well, not sure how this works.
Yes, I had a post here the other day about the WG7J online mapping tool and also about N0TTL's GridTracker app that you D/L and run locally on your computer. GridTracker gets its data from WSJT-X or JTAlertX in near real time and displays all traffic on the frequency on a map on your computer. Works great with a second monitor so you can run it full screen there and still have your primary monitor for WSJT-X and any other apps you have running. I like to keep a browser window open to QRZ so I can look up contacts and see something about their station, etc.
Don't know what happened to that post but it was in this thread and apparently I never posted it or it got deleted for some reason.
Go my QRZ page where I have some screen shots of both displayed. Scroll down they are near the bottom.
Many satellite operators use gcmwin to map their list of confirmed and worked grids. It works great.
