The AprsGrid program is a utility program to help the amateur radio operator calculate their APRS-IS pass code and/or their grid square location. The APRS-IS pass code can be used for normal APRS tracking programs that require it. The APRS-IS pass code is calculated from the operator’s callsign.
The grid square can be used with programs like FT4, FT8, JS8Call, and any other program that requires grid square values. The grid square is calculated from the entered GPS coordinates in decimal degree values and will calculate a 10 character grid square value. Just use the accuracy that you need from 4 to 10 characters.
