algorithm passed along by N6TR that included distance calculations. Tree
and I wanted to be in agreement for the W1BB contest.
To be honest, I have no idea how the algorithm works - it is full of trig
functions, identities, etc.
If someone will test their cases and provide a list of problem situations,
I'll take a look at fixing the code. I will need:
1. Your latitude and longitude exactly as entered into NA.
2. The problem country.
3. The latitude and longitude of the problem country as defined in your
#3 might not be necessary, since this data does not change regularly,
however it ensures that we don't have a bad country file causing the
