Good Afternoon Group,

I hope you don't find this question terribly off topic from the groups 
intended use, but I'd like to know if there's a way display an APRS map with 
a weather radar overlay?

Our club's program next month is focused on the manner in which our NCS 
utilizes APRS mapping to track myself and others with APRS equipped rigs 
when we're out storm spotting. I'd love to be able to show an APRS.fi or 
similar map with radar embedded/overlaid if at all possible.

Even if it's a commercial product. Any recommendations this group might have 
you be most appreciated.

I've made a small change in the aprs.fi embedded map launcher, and it
works with IE9 again.

Seems like IE9 introduced an incompatibility in the javascript CSS DOM
parser. It refuses to understand a size definition which *every* other
browser understands. Luckily the workaround was easy.
