I apparently have an unpublished , temporarily disabled Community Event GC8NPHV. I have a date (in October) and location in mind. Can't seem to do anything with and it doesn't like my coordinates. Any advice including how to make the degree symbol would be appreciated.

Good morning. It seems you should not need the degree symbol, but who knows.

Often if I am posting something on a site that does not have a symbol option, I first type it in a Word document, then copy and paste it. See below as an example: (assuming the Forum platform supports that symbol. Not all platforms support all symbols)

N39° XX.YYY, W076° AA.BBB

Phill, you can also find a listing of Alt-key combinations for various symbols by googling them, whether for PC or Mac (you should specify your platform). The ALT key will give you a wide range of characters or symbols in combination with almost every key on the keyboard. If you use a Mac, Alt-K will give you the degree symbol (or Option-K - it's the same key). I don't know if you can get the degree symbol with Alt-K on a PC/Windows machine - it may be a different combination.

When typing in this info you only need to type in the numbers and the periods. Do not forget to type the N and W and put a zero before the 77 or 78. If you do that it will be accepted.
