No - the position is in the code.  And it was wrong for UA0S.  The location
is entered as a grid square - which the sunrise/sunset and beam heading 
routine can use directly to compute headings.  

The grid for UA0S was 0022 (zero-zero-two-two) which should have been OO22,
(oh-oh-two-two).  I am sure that will make a difference!

It will be fixed in the next release I send out.
