Jerry...That's an interesting observation! Out of the literally millions of calls listed at QRZ.com, What % of those millions of world wide calls listed has been banned?
Out of the 37,502 Q's I have in my ACLog, is the percentage large enough to even matter?
I am still using ACLog 4.9, and it fills in the grid sq. info for me. I have it set up just the way I described in an earlier post.

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.
