For those of you competing for the "Low Band Monitor" 160 meter WAC 40K
mileage challenge this year, my wife was able to "Google" Wikimapia.com and
come up with the coordinates for Moucha Island where J20RR/J20MM were
operating and for Agatti Island where the VU7RG 160 meter station operating
around 1827 KHz was located.
Moucha Island, Djibouti:
Latitude 11°43'14"N, Longitude 43°11'53"E.
Agatti Island, Lakshadeep:
Latitude 10°50'55"N, Longitude 72°11'22"E
Go to the W4SM website http://www.keplerian.com/ to download WINGRID 4.1
software, to calculate distances by Grid Squares or Latitude and Longitude
from your QTH to that of the station worked on each continent.
