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.
