N23DQ Longitude/Latitude
« on: April 24, 2018, 05:27:25 PM »
Hi,

Iíve recently set up my PWS and itís working well with the exception of one thing which is bugging me. The sunrise and sunset times are obviously not right and I think this may be due to the longitude and latitude settings being incorrect.

According to latlong.net my location is LAT: 54.108967 and LONG: -3.218894. However, the N23DQ indoor unit doesnít seem to use this convention. Each setting needs me to choose NORTH/SOUTH and EAST/WEST, and also doesnít allow me to input negative numbers.

Any ideas how to enter the location correctly, or convert it to the correct format for the unit?

Thanks - that converts to 54į 6' 32.2812'' N and 3į 13' 8.0184'' W.

Do I just ignore the degrees and enter the decimal numbers?

Thanks - I tried adding the decimals and it hasnít corrected the sunset/sunrise times (although they did change)

So, what are today's correct times, and what does the weather station put out?

The N23DQ is showing 06:53 then 20:08.

However, google has them as 05:49 and 20:34. The BBC weather site has it as 05:52 and 20:31.

I get that there maybe a few minutes difference between providers, but the indoor unit does seem to be a bit out, so Iím guessing I havenít input the Long/Lat quite right?
