  • Click on your callsign top right.
  • Click on “Profile”
  • Near the bottom of the page on the left hand side you will see two fields called “Latitude” and “Longitude”

Your lat/long must be in decimal format.

VKSpotter will only take 6 decimal places. If you enter more than that, you will see an error when you click the Update Profile button.
