No, that isn't so unless you live exactly on a longitude which seperates
2 time zones, or if you live exactly on the spot where the data is
referenced, which is unlikely because most of it is referenced to an
airport, with exceptions.. You must adjust your Local Apparent Noon by
adding the degrees and seconds to the longitude and coming up with your
true noon time. Obviously, shadows in Savannah, GA pointing due north do
not coincide with those in Atlanta.
Good idea though, however I fail to understand why everyone just doesn't
use the North Star. It's easy to see, and directly true north.
However, it all seems an exercise in futility since most beam heading are
derived using a Mercator projection, ( which is distorted ) and thereby
issue magnetic headings, which must be adjusted for East/West deviation.

CQP is always the first full weekend of October. That would make it 4-5 Oct. 1997.

Anyone out there who can tell me when the 1997 California QSO Party will be?
(we intend the Tennessee QSO Party to happen the previous weekend..) What's
the standard formula? -- is it always the first full weekend of October?

Is there anyone who have a program to change the Bands to Frequency
aswell as Mode PH to SSB. I need to do this to get the logs into my normal=
logger. Also the date format need to be changed a bit. Somehow Month/Day and=
never seem to cooperate in this world of computers.
Ofcourse I can make a Basic program to fix it but maybe someone already
have done it.

I bit-shredded (deleted) a mail message pertaining to the ftp site for
the new NA cty files. I'm particularly interested in the cty files for
the SS this weekend. If anyone knows the site, please forward it to me.
Thanks for the help.
