    When I scan the grid squared award, it shows a confirmed African contact. But when I scan all contents, it shows no african confirmed....... Screenshot_20200128-002306_Chrome.jpg Screenshot_20200128-002343_Chrome.jpg

    Which grid is confirmed and is also in Africa?

    You have a green dot just off of Africa. That is the GPS coords N00000 W00000. Someone confirmed with the wrong grid. Look for your confirmed contact in grid JJ00.

    I had a friend who traveled to N00000 W00000 and he was never seen nor heard from again .... truly an evil and terrifying place :eek:

    PS - another vote for: check your log for a grid JJ00 and figure it out from there

    It is a rare entity indeed, few enter and fewer ever leave.

    you can't just look for the grid squared, JJ00, you have to look for the square root of that grid. Easy enough to calculate by hand.

    Based on the Grid2 analysis, the only confirmed credit you have for JJ00 is a QSO with IK4GRO (Italy) that is not in Africa. As to continents, you still need Africa.

    It seems that JJ00 is a default grid entry resulting from the lack of a proper grid at ID entry. There is no entity associated with JJ00. The credit is faulty and JJ00 likely should be withdrawn from analyses.
