I just tried the summary link & it states my ID isnt registered which
makes sense because the e-mail I received from CWOP stated to verify
the location then e-mail them to complete the registration process. I
just looked in the WUHU read me & theres a nice formula for converting
decimal lat & long so I'll need to sit down & crunch a couple of
numbers:-)

• You can convert DMS into DD.MM by taking your seconds divide by 60 add you minutes divide by 60 and add your degrees to get decimal degree coordinates. To go

You can convert DMS into DD.MM by taking your seconds divide by 60
coordinates. To go from decimal degrees to DMS, subtract the degrees
then multiply by 60 subtract the minutes multiply by 60 to get the seconds.

Bob, the problem is that it's not just DD.MM but CWOP needs LORAN numbers.  All I know about LORAN is that it ain't decimal, even though it's expressed decimally.  Oh, and the big planes used it during the Viet Nam fray ... like the C-5.  But what do I know?  I maintained radar, not nav equipment ...

Message 4 of 13 , Aug 12, 2008

Jaye;

Although I have never used LORAN, HIRAN, Transit and several other
navigation syems, I have only used VOR and GPS. I have never heard of
LORAN coordinates, as I understand it LORAN was a radio nav system that
used the intersection of signals to determine your LAT/LONG. Let me see
if I can find an old manual around somewhere.

I use WUHU to send my data to CWOP and I input the decimal degree
coordinates from a hand held GPS and it works fine. My station is
CW9012 and it plots correctly on the CWOP map. So I would highly
suggest trying the decimal degree format.

I got it all sorted out - Thanks to all, I used the formula in the
read me file which is the same as what Bob mentioned, this worked
GREAT once I found correct coordinates for my area through
http://acme.com/mapper/ the coordinates given by the Eagle replacement
http://www.geocode.com/ were wrong by about 4 miles or so! Anyway I'm
up & running though I apparently lost internet connectivity in the wee
hours of the AM, something thats pops up now & then but is getting
worse, I think my cable modem is dying as if I do a reset of the modem
I'm back online.
