I shall be QRV from the Isle of Wight tomorrow for an hour or so around 12:00z on 6m and 20m. Does anyone know of a freeware PDA programme to convert Lat/Long to Maidenhead? I shall have a GPS with me to provide accurate position info.

Thanks

Most GPS units (e.g. Garmin) have maidenhead locator as an option in the menu Brendan. You may also look here if you know where you will stay.

OK Per, very many thanks for that. We have a very ancient Garmin GPS about which I thought I knew everything. Careful check following your note reveals that it does provide MH locator info. Now I can be sure of which square I'm in when /M. I hope to be on or around 14260 at 1200z tomorrow..
