Right-click displays the nearest 400 lakes of the current position. Left click on the lake mark displays the ID, name, and position. Double-clicking zooms in and recenters the map.
Search by "Id" lists who have activated the lake and when.

Definition of lake
The database of SMSS contains about 100,000 Swedish lakes where everyone has received a four-digit
letter code for ease of identification.

All data comes from SMHI. According to international standards the lakes position is marked
at the exit, it means that the marking of the lake sits at the exit and not in the middle of the lake on the map. SMHI's definition of "lake" is that it is larger than one hectare, equivalent to 100 X 100 meters.

This means that it can be difficult to find the marker for example, Lake Malaren.
No lakes will be removed and no lakes will be added.
Many smaller lakes, especially in the inner northern Sweden has no official name.

Log book
When logging, data to the other station are crosschecked. To get a confirmed QSO time must be within +/- 1 h, lake ID must match.
Cross Checking is also done against the received field. In this way, one can easily see if an area has already been run. If so it will be highlighted green. Note, the control of the broadcast area will not occur. Event Viewer can be sorted by unconfirmed QSOs by checking the box at the bottom of the log. It is also possible to search any call in any logbook.
