Skip-Tracer Eskip helper -   This is a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet which contains station information for thousands of stations across North America.  It is useful if you receive E-skip and want to look for other possibilities coming from that same direction.  You put in your coordinates and it tells you where more possible eskip can be coming from and where to listen.  
There are 3 files to make this work.  The 3 files are contained in the ZIP file below. 
The .pdf file  explains what the spreadsheet does and how to use it. The .xls file is the actual excel spreadsheet.  The .xla file is a formula that you plug into the excel spreadsheet to make it work.
NOTE: Microsoft Excel REQUIRED for the spreadsheet.  Adobe Reader (see link above) required to view the .pdf file that contains instructions/explanations.
