This generates coverage maps for stations, and gives estimates of how far a station travels during either the day or the night. I used it to check on KVNA's coverage, as stu said it wasn't great lately, and it looks pitiful. All you have to do is put in the call sign under "Program" next to country and region. I haven't checked it out, but I think you can do it for MEX stations and Canadian stations too.

HEA!

Okay, here is a bit of how it works.

First, I don't know how, but it knows your current location.

You want to set the radius setting to a good large number, I use 500km.

You put USA or whatever country in the country tab, and type in the calls under program.

You can specify the range of frequencies used and whether you want it to show day or night coverage.

This is a cool little script!

Here is XEROK's coverage at night, estimated. I had the dB set to 30, which is an average AM receiver. Freaking amazing.
