Do you know much about Maidenhead Grid Squares? VHF/UHF and higher frequency contests use your grid square as part of a valid exchange. Most hams know the grid square when at thier home QTH. If you were portable or roving (mobile), how would you determine your grid square? I will explain Maidenhead Grid Squares and how they are calculated. Joel will demonstrate how to get your grid square using your phone/tablet and some other devices. He will have several available devices for demonstration and will describe building a micro-controller device for displaying your grid square while mobile.

Joel Curneal has ties to Maine as he was born in Milo and moved to Connecticut when he was 12 years old. His talk will be at 8:00 AM in the Board Room which happens to be at Grid Square FN44vb. Be there or be Square!
