    Re: NO 9xx plotting sheets
    From: Peter Hakel

    An alternative could be to use the white backside of some gift-wrap papers to make your own plotting sheets. Those are quite large and some even have a light Cartesian grid printed on them, which may come in handy. If your track is mostly E/W, for instance, you can keep plotting as you unroll on one end and roll-up on the other like a scroll or reel-to-reel tape. Or you can just cut off the old parts of the track, if you don't care about those anymore. If your track wants to run off the top or the bottom edge of the paper, just redefine your central parallel, move your EP accordingly up or down, and resume plotting from there.
