Hello John,
The simple answer is you can't because there is no compatibility between the two systems. For further reading, take a look at this website http://www.g3npf.co.uk/gridmaps.htm

Unfortunately this can't really be done. A WAB square covers several Maidenhead squares.

Eg SO22 covers:
IO81KU
IO81KV
IO81KW
IO81KX
IO81LU
IO81LV
IO81LW
IO81LX

Even converting the smaller 6 figure Maidenhead to WAB can result in errors as you can rest assured some will overlap.

IO81LX is also in SO32 as well as SO22
