1.0.14, Oct. 30th 2020 - CQ & ITU Zones

Unread post by Simon G4ELI »

Hi,

Added CQ and ITU Zones. Data from this site which uses kmz files created by IV3TMM who is SK on QRZ.com :( .

KMZ is ZIP compressed KML which is XML, so in the kits I include cq.xml and itu.xml.

Changes
ITU zones 74 and 75 - position is the label changed to +/- 85° from 89.5°.

Bugs
There are small errors in the data. I've appended screenshots, if anyone wants to dig into the xml files and fix then please do and let me know what the changes are.
  • CQ Zones - between eastern Russia and Alaska.
  • ITU Zones - around Greenland and Iceland.
  • ITU Zones - around -180° longitude.
Kit
This is only a test kit.
