Above is a "test" sample of the distance and bearing table. This results from the Alt-U (or u) command. The current QTH comes from the latest GPS data. If GPS is not being used, it is from the first location in the QTH list, called location 0. The list for this table is not the entire QTH list, but rather those selected from the second screen of the QTH Dialog Box . This allows EME locations to be omitted, if desired, or to have the list simplified by omitting unused stations. The maximum number of stations is 25, the first 10 of which are EME locations (0 to 9).
By default, the
bearings are between actual
and longitude coordinates. This can be changed to the centers of
6-digit grid squares by making the UHFA.CFG variable grid_ctr equal to
1. The bearings are clockwise from true north.
Hitting any key when the Distance and Bearing Table is viewed will bring up a second screen that is the raw data for the QTH list.
By default, the first 10 stations (0 to 9) of the QTH list are used for EME Doppler calculations. This number can be changed by the UHFA.CFG file variable n_eme_loc that can take any value between 1 and 25. Location 0 is always in the EME QTH list.
shows the stations, descriptions and latitude/longitude. Empty entries
are shown as blank lines. Entries with an asterisk as the
first character of the description,
will appear in the Distance and Bearing Table.
The format of latitude and longitude display is dependent on the configuration variable gps_ddmm. This determines if degrees or degrees and minutes are shown. See the details under Clock Configuration File Variables. Location number 0 does not show the number. This is a quirk of the printf function, but the missing zero is quite obvious.
