NR33 Error

Postby M5AED » Sat Aug 20, 2016 4:00 pm

I have worked GB1CFL, a lighthouse station, who gave their square as NR33, and that is on their QRZ page as well. Looking at my map NR33 is nearly all water, whilst Carraig Fhada Lighthouse on the Isle Of Islay is NR34. I have checked the web by searching for sites relating to the lighthouse and they do say the NGR is NR34. If you work the station then it is your choice but I am not going to claim the NR33 that they are giving. Has anyone noticed this before ?

Looking at http://www.fonant.com/osmap.html I would agree with NR34 (NR349443)

It states NR33 on their QSL Card :-

I have just had a contact with them again, they have agreed to change to NR34. Thanks for your help Dave.
