You think it is bad figuring that out?
Try running back and forth, until they do......

Subject: [4sqrp] QRZ.com "distance" reports are different.

 
Guys, 
I wonder if anyone else has spotted this intermittent problem at QRZ.com ? 

I have noticed a difference in 
1) the QRZ.com reported "Distance" 
vs.  
2) the "Bio page" "Detail map" reported "Distance".  

Sometimes it may be 40% milage off. 
Most of the time it is the same. 

Here is a sample QRZ log comment entry,

20LW. 941. Dale WC7S in WY 
2nd time today. 
QSB flutter 73. 
Think Dale parks at 14.060. 
QRZ "Bio" "Detail" (via Google) reports "Distance:  908.5 mi  (1462.1 km)". 
QRZ "log page"                           reports "Distance:  464.0 mi   / 746 km" 

Glen, updated.

So, the question next is, running QRPp , 
if I apply for a "1000 miles per watt certificate", 
which figures do I use ?  

Have submitted a Service Requist to QRZ.com. 
This example is just the latest, 
not the big one, at 1600 miles on a Watt of power. 
This problem is not 100%, just often enough to be spotted. 

Anybody else spotted this problem ?
