|Target Version||Fixed in Version||188.8.131.521|
|Summary||0002150: Grid Square (Maidenhead) maps in Rotator not accurate.|
Bruce has reported that the Maidenhead overlay for the map in the Rotator software is not accurate. It appears in his display the L column is missing and the A column is missing.
As a comparison I have included screenshots from both Bruces computer and the one I have in my computer. The A column is indeed missing from my display, however mine does show the L column. There appears to be other discrpencies in Bruces map also. See his notes from the ticket.
This is exactly what Bruce reported in his ticket::

Thr new 664 version corrects the rotor control but as in many years past the L column is missing in the maidenhead squares and now so is the A column which is totally missing. This throws the calibration of the squares off about one column which makes it hard to use the squares to popint the antena in the correct direction...L column is not populated and teh A column is totaly missing

Looking at it again..You have the A column mislabled as S...I dont think there is an S colume as squares stop at R...The L column is still missing its letters

Thanks for the clear report, ya'll.
The problem with the S column showing instead of the A column is my fault for a tweak I had made to the Locator code.
The missing rightmost column (L column for the default view and 100% zoom) is a long-standing issue. Or, at least, before I got here: it reproduces in 647.
Note that this bug also affected the dusk-line window in Logbook.
I've fixed both issues with this checkin:
A Collumns missing.

A column showing for me.

From what I can see, the "N column" is missing.

I see column N but the R column on the right edge is partly missing and the rest of the column appears on the left.

The map has to wrap somewhere. The app locates your QTC in the center of your screen, then scrolls the map around it. That might make a square wrap from the right edge to the left edge because of where your QTH falls within the large grid square.
In the G3UCQ case, if we didn't draw the text (even though it's partially clipped) users wouldn't see the text at all -- and assume there was no R column. In Ferry's case, that's exactly what happens on the left edge; since the left most grid square starts off the client area of the window, the text isn't drawn into it and Ferry assumed it was actually missing. Obviously, it's there -- just not labelled.
I can fix this so that the grid square name is always drawn, even if the square is partially off the window ...

build 669 Not fixed
Locator here JO22OQ
Missing the A collum
In my case (home:FM16pt) the "O" column is the split at the left edge. If I manually type an "O" locator in, it is correctly pointed on the map, even though the labels in that column are missing, and I suspect the missing labels are due to the column split.
In my opinion, call it done, unless labeling the split column is easy..
"In my opinion, call it done, unless labeling the split column is easy.. "
I will second that.
