QTH locator to a map  

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QRA_locator      Says is obsolete

The QRA locator system has three disadvantages, which led to its replacement by the current Maidenhead system:   It does not cover the whole earth but only an area of 48° by 24°.

If we try to cover a larger area by repeating the letter references, the a given locator corresponds to more than one places on the earth.

 

Conversion from longitude and latitude to locator reference and vice versa is somewhat complicated.

The Story of Offshore & Pirate Radio

Java  now use HTML5

on Firefox

 

 

http://vk5pas.org/category/websdr/ =   The WebSDR project has, since its beginning, used Java applets to play sound and show the waterfall display. These are so-called “unsigned” applets, which run in a restricted environment (called “sandbox”), where they cannot do any harm to your computer and thus are totally safe, in principle.

 Java and this sandbox are made by Oracle, and apparently Oracle has trouble making this sandbox totally safe. These bugs can be exploited by malicious applets to harm your computer. In the latest Java release, they apparently gave up the hope of fixing all sandbox bugs; instead, they now make it as difficult as possible to run unsigned applets at all, both the malicious and the good ones.

On Windows/Mac, you can find this list by going to the system control panel or System Preferences and choosing Java (you may want to use the control panel’s search function); then choose the Security tab, and click on “Manage Site List”. Then there’s an “Add” button to add a URL to the list. Put the complete URL there,

HTML5 Is not a total solution either: it doesn’t work on Internet Explorer, and generally not on older versions of browsers.    So I always use  Firefox or Avant.
