Just a word of caution ...
 
Keep in mind that this is a QRZ product  and many, many listings have wrong grid tied to call sign. Don't believe it when you see a station in OR  with a grid  for TX .
 
Just sayin'

Here's a link to a grid square locator that I find very handy.  You can search by call, grid square (4 or 6 digit),  or address, city and state, or zip code.  Pops up a map showing the location with a very handy zoom in, zoom out feature.

Rick,

I've used this program to locate /P's when they don't announce their grid during the QSO.
Very helpful.

Jerry,

If your freezer was in Antarctica all you would have had to do is wait and a giant piece the size of Delaware would have broken off.
That would have shortened your wait time.

Steve,
I saw VY2PLH on 20m but couldn't get through so I decided to check later on 40m just in case, and he was there.  According to his web page it was only activated for one day.
Interesting history for the LH.

Got lucky this time.

Re: Grids

Jerry N9AVY
 

Just did a bit of research on QRZ ...

The only Wisconsin grid I need is EN65 and there are seemingly 9 page of hams in EN65  or so it would seem.
 
Scanning through the 9 pages I found hams using EN65  who had addresses in CO, KY, IA, TX and MN (Minneapolis).
 
It would appear that EN65 is also in MI as well as WI.  The most often seen towns are: Marinette, Menominee, Peshtigo, Crivitz and a bunch of smaller towns.  So, if one is seriously  hunting for this grid , those 4 towns would be likely targets.  
 
One can use the "look up grid " feature on QRZ to find other towns & grids.  Some probably already know this, but others may not.

Grids

Jerry N9AVY
 

Still kind of old-fashioned type and I like to see lists for things I'm chasing.  So, using Excel I made a list of all the grids I still need .. about 140 or so.  This way I can see at a glance what grids I need while operating. There's probably a way to do it on computer, but I like seeing stuff right in front of my eyes without having to bounce back and forth on computer screens.  Anyhow, this is what works for me.
 
The old list was terribly out of date because I was lax on checking grids off when I worked them. Don't expect to work many more or ever finish endorsement. I don't usually rely on QRZ or even the station for correct grid. QRZ is terribly inaccurate...  don't believe everything you read on QRZ !
It was fun making up list while I was waiting for freezer in garage to defrost ... it looked like Antarctica inside !  Took a couple hours, but it's done for another year.  Which reminds me that all to soon it will be "antenna maintenance"  time.  Check all those connections for loose wires/bolts , ground connections, cracks/holes in coax and all the other stuff no one wants to go out in cold or in middle of contest to fix.

I would like to tie that in to another conversation currently going on.  The topic of PSK31 Technical information on the PODXS website.  I think that this would be the PSK equivalent of "Teach a man to fish".

New hams, I like to think,  want to do the right thing but need a source of information to know what right looks like.  You,... WE, could be the becon to the path of PSK righteousness.

Re: Question ?

Sometimes the name is important if working DX in case the call was busted due to QRN/QRM and temporary dyslexia. Having the name can sometimes be used to verify the correct call.  It fies that the guy on the other end isn't taking a nap.

I think the point is “do you have a valid QSO if the info isn’t exchanged properly?”
When you send “Bob” and they reply with “Robert”, you are not guaranteed they are actually getting the information from you over the air. While the computer/internet based info a nice bonus, this is supposed to be about communication over the air. If all you got was Macro replies, did you actually have a QSO?
