How do I add my latitude and longitude to my profile?

  • 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”

Setting Latitude and Longitude

Your lat/long must be in decimal format.

An example for the southern hemisphere would be: lat -33.785780 long 150.693160\ Notice the minus sign in the latitude which is only for stations in the southern hemisphere. 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.

A site for obtaining, and the conversion of lat/long from different formats to decimal format would be www.latlong.net or this site https://www.egloff.eu/googlemap_v3/carto.php

Enter the lat and long in the appropriate fields and click the “Update Profile” button. The lat long will only accept 6 decimal places. If you enter more than that you will receive an error.

You will need to logout and log back in after changing and saving your lat/long.
