    On checking my logbook the problem appears to be with HRD.

    All the Grid Locators are wrong and this information is being uploaded to QRZ.

    I have corrected the Grid Locator entry for ZR6DX to KG33xv in HRD and uploaded to QRZ but the entry still shows JF98ul ?

    Could it be that ZR6DX is also using HRD and uploading the wrong grid locator; would that make sense?

    I will have to contact him and find out.

    Find an click on LOCATE button to launch map
    At the top enter the Grid Square KG33xv

    Check to see that the grid square in the Receiver Info tab now reads KG33xv

    Good news everyone!

    I just rolled out better Grid Square support. Grid Square as well as lat/lon should now recalculate properly as you type them. No need for the locate button, However its still there incase you want the map. In addition we now support 2,4,6 and 8 digit grid squares.

    Note that this does not change any award requirements, Squares apply based on precision. So an 8 digit square will satisfy a requirement for a 2,4 or 6 digit square but not the other way around.

    Please let me or John (W1DQ) know if you have any issues.
