With the weather improving across the British Isles, in-between the sharp rain showers and thunderstorms – its a perfect time to start operating portable on HF, of course when you’re out in the field finding your Worked All Britain square can be a little tricky if asked for it on air.

However a couple of years back I made a simple application Android application called WAB Finder which utilises the GPS in the handset to figure it all out automatically. Sadly the application only works on mainland UK although I hope it will soon support Northern Ireland, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man in the coming months as it gets a few more code tweaks.

You can go download the app from the Google Play store for free.
