Also, I should mention that there are many calls which have been banned because of things they had posted on their pages and/or in QRZ forums. What I'm saying is that QRZ is not 100% accurate. The FCC data base is definitely the most accurate.

$30 is the lowest level that provides XML data.
Since most hams provide grid data, I can't see paying for it. And as Jerry points out, the data on QRZ isn't guaranteed to be accurate. I'll generally ask for the grid if the ham doesn't provide it, and use QRZ as a last resort. I can look it up in a matter of seconds while I'm sending a macro.
When you're paying for 2 Master's Degrees, $30 saved is 30 extra dollars in my pocket.
