Will try for 22:41 Mir

Hi All

I am going to try (AGAIN!) for a voice QSO with Mir here in South Africa
Local time of the pass will be 0:41 and UTC is 22:41.  I read the
message re voice comms in UK yesterday at the 22:20 UTC pass, so
because mine is reasonably close to that, I am hoping for success!!!

Will let you all know how it goes.....

BTW, does anybody know the equation for converting locators eg KG50DK
into the Lat and Long??? Perhaps a little QBASIC code would help or any
other programming language, or even a formula.....Also, if you know of
some software which will plot an entered locator on a world map, I would
be grateful for that information. :)
