Lost beacon map

Have you ever tried to revisit a web page that you can remember seeing a few days/weeks/months ago, and found that it has completely disappeared?

A few weeks ago I remember seeing a beacon map of Europe. I'm sure it was a 2m (144MHz) beacon map, but perhaps that's where my memory is failing me. I think it was plotted on a Google map background. But unlike the map at Make More Miles on VHF, the symbols for each beacon showed the beam heading, and when you pointed at each one a box popped up with information such as the locator, antenna and power output.

Does such a beacon map really exist, or did I imagine it?

That's funny, I was looking at a 70cm beacon map on GoogleEarth recently but have no idea where it came from as I've not kept the data file... Perhaps your browser's "History" window will help ? Mine goes back as far as March ;)
