Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Fremont Point transmitter area
Sorry this has nothing to do with TV.
This is for any one who lives in the Channel Islands.
I was wondering what map system you use in the Channel Islands.
I know you don't use the British Ordnance Survey grid system.
Wikipedia say that you use the UTC (Universal Transverse Mercator coordinate system)
Ordnance Survey National Grid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
That would put you near the bottom of square U30, but all references on this site put you in square XD.
DMAP: UTM Grid Zones of the World
I an looking for the formula to convert a grid reference, (EG. XD920195)
into the latitude/longitude values. (EG. 49.1873, -2.10345) (RH163LB)

Thank you for the code.
I think it's the OSi code for Ireland and not the Channel Islands.
As all the Channel Islands are within one square, I'll try and workout the corner of the square TX...... and the scale.
Then the code will be:
TX bottom corner latitude - (xxx * scale) // Minus as west of Greenwich.
TX bottom corner longitude + (yyy * scale)
For ref TXxxxyyy
As they are near to France they may use the French system.

Mark A.: It's the code for the UK. I use Nearby.org.uk - Location Searches - Points of Interest - UK - GB and Ireland for Irish Grid codes. The channel islands grid is slightly different, I think I must have done them all "by hand"...
