I was just  testing  "QTH"   an Android app  for the HTC mobile   very nice 
The locator is shown  as JO33HG31  in  Googlemaps       with the extra 2 digits  i was looking for..

this 2 digits give extra resolution to a square  of about 450m by 225m  about


I once had an E-track that also showed the WW-locator  but it was stolen out my suitcase on Lissabon airport years ago.
I was missing this  but now the mobile offers all.... including  navigation  ..


My laptop was stolen in Barcelona last year..  bad luck .. 


I have to be very very careful  when ever going back to those places.


For the  test I also started the IC706  at  144.488000 (dial)  WSPR  vertical  10W   
it is running all day and evening  but not a ping so far


Should be possible  300-500km though even with the vertical. Not sure how the others are polarized

Mooie resultaten Jaap, vooral op 15m. Hou je ook een DXCC lijst bijwaar je gehoord bent met je 1W ?? 73, Bas
