Beam headings


#1

Does any body else have a strange beam heading for NP032. I have 178 deg from here and it should be around 350

In reply to G4JZF:
The lat. and long. haven’t been entered Graham so only those due south of NP-032 will have correct bearing :slight_smile:

The Birmingham conurbation is close to due south of NP-032, Roger!

I think Graham means the beam heading in Sotawatch is dodgy. I have 178 in Sotawatch but Clive is exactly where he should be, approx 45 degrees from my QTH.

Many thanks both for info. Managed to pick Clive up okay for unique !!.
Still want NW-063 for last G/GW summit.

I’m not quite sure why SOTAwatch doesn’t have the lat/long entered for G/NP-032. Of course it is a late addition to the list, but it has been in the lat/long lists I supply to GM4ZFZ for some time, so it ought to be there. I think only Jon can answer this one.
