That's precisely the approach I was going to take. Excel makes the math easy (at least for me), and each of those steps would result in one character. Then it's a simple concatenate.

For those that are interested, this thread:
gives a fairly concise description of how to convert from latitude/longitude to Maidenhead Grid. It appears to be correct to me but I’ve not examined it closely.
Be aware that the datum for Maidenhead Grid is WGS84, so if you are using a GPS set to some other datum (e.g. NAD27) then you’ll get wrong answers when you’re close to a grid boundary!
