program was developed to replace the command line programs BD through
BD2004, as they will no longer run under windows 7 and higher.
The program provides a way to calculate the antenna bearings and distance from your location to the center of any 4 or 6 digit grid square. It also provides the decimal latitude and longitude of your location and the remote grid.
Win BD features the ability to create and save many 'Home' locations and easily select the appropriate one. This can be very handy for rover stations who often operate from the same locations year after year. Once a grid is entered into the Grid 2 box, selecting a different location from the select list will automatically show the calculations from the new location. Home locations that have already been created can be selected on the main screen by using the drop down box as shown to the right.
You can also save entered grids in the Grid2 field in a "Recently Used" list, by clicking the save button. Then you can select an item from this drop down list instead of typing it in. You can save a maximum of 10 grids in the recently used list.
New home locations may be created, or existing ones edited in the Setup window. Setup displays a list of existing locations and allows editing, copying, or deleting existing locations. It also has a 'New' button to create a new location.
The program is simple to use so enjoy!
