QRA Locator

Description:QRA Locator is a program to calculate a 6-character Maidenhead or QRA locator from a latitude and longitude. It is mainly used by radio amateurs, as this compact form is more suitable for transmission than the usual latitude/longitude, and is thus less liable to error. The archive contains a detailed explanation of the Maidenhead Locator System, as well as a worked example, and comprehensively commented source code, as well as the binary files for the HP48 and the HP49/50 calculators. It is writen in User RPL.
