I am just starting to use HRD. In the Rotator tool, my home location icon is way off, somewhere near Africa. Does anyone know how to reset that to the correct location (Florida)?
Thanks!

Did you insert the correct grid locator? According to Murphy this is a possibility Wink

check your longitude and make sure it's the right sign or that you didn't drop a zero somewhere.

If unclear one can find the locator using: http://f6fvy.free.fr/qthLocator/fullScreen.php
Yours should be EL88RU with Long : -82.57238 W (-82° 34' 21'' W), Lat : 28.84422 N (28° 50' 39'' N)
