Hello Monks!

Another way of getting your coordinates (insufficient, but it's a good start)... If you know some HAM Radio operators... we use Grid Square Locators system. My current locator is JO81MB, while my home locator is JO91BS. The whole world is divided into squares, where the smallest one is about 4.5km x 4.5km :-) So it's a bit accurate :-)
To read more about it please visit this site where you will find more info about the system itself.

Now when you know your locator, you go AMSAT GridSquare Conversion and that's all :-)
