James if your Grid Square info is wrong on QRZ why don't you fix it?????
QRZ makes it extremely, and I mean extremely, easy to correct any thing 
wrong in their listing for you. They have new software running their site 
which is very user friendly. Pin-pointing your exact location is as easy as 
point and click.  The only info you can't correct is your basic FCC info. 
You need to contact the FCC for that. Grid square is not FCC info.
Good Luck

Everyone in the world is
entitled to be burdened
by my opinion

Not always.

QRZ.com shows the wrong grid square for me (the one I moved out of six years
ago) and when you "Load Map" on QRZ.com the map shows that (wrong) grid
square, too.

QRZ.com grid square listings were wrong on a handful of other people I
checked who live "outside their call area," too.
