Hi Ken,

Thanks, the satellite view really is very good and I see something
looking like a beam on the roof of the house to the left. 
I added an event that writes the coordinates of the map center below the
image. If you doubleclick where you want the position to be you will
focus the map on that point and the coordinates will be written beneath
the map, just transfering that to pskmailrc.pl should work.
