[CQ-Contest] Grid square is a dumb exchange

So keep a grid square map handy, like most of us do.  No big deal.  It's the best exchange since you can figure distance, like the Stew Perry 160 contest.

Sheesh is that all you have to worry about?

My first time on 6m this weekend, just playing around in the contest.  
On a band with such spotty propagation, it would be nice to know the QTH 
of the stations being worked.  Short of keeping a grid sq. map handy, 
there's no way to know where each grid is.  How about state or section 
in the exchange, too?
