Put Yourself on the BITX Map

Seeing the topics for regional operator lists got me thinking.  If words are good, pictures are better.  I set up a google map that you can add yourself too to help visualize where everyone is located.  I was going to add people that responded to the other topics but out of respect for privacy (and my laziness) this should be entirely opt in only.  The map is only accessible with the link below.  The interface is reasonably intuitive but I will do my best to explain how to add yourself.

go to

type your address in the search bar on the top of the map (the box with the magnifying glass to the right)
hit enter or click the magnifying glass
verify the location displayed
click add to map at the bottom of the box that pops up
now click the pencil/edit icon at the bottom right of the box
change the highlighted address to your call sign and click save at the bottom left of the box
you can also add more information to your spot if you choose to
bookmark the link and check back as more people add themselves

I am making this sound much more complicated than it is.  If anyone can describe the process better please do.
