In November 2000 I discovered with the help of a GPS receiver that the longitude and latitude that I had been using was inaccurate. This meant that QTH locator was slightly incorrect... I was using IO93RL, it should be IO93QL.

W4SM has developed a very nice piece of software that will convert Grid Square to Lat/Long  and Lat/Long to Grid Square. Additionally, it will calculate the heading and distance between 2 locations.
