I logged into N8NM's cluster.  He's running DXSpider V1.55 build 0.31

I have never done a SET/QTH or SET/QRA on this node.  But apparently
it knows where I am because the SH/STA information is correct:

AD1C-4 de N8NM 19-Nov-2008 1942Z dxspider >
sh/sta ad1c

It must have received this information from another node.

What's curious is the output of the SH/H[eading] command on this node:

sh/h k
Using N8NM Coords, consider doing a set/location or set/qra
K  United-States-K: 282 degs - dist: 243 mi, 391 km Reciprocal heading: 99

If SH/STA has my info, why does the node respond with "Using N8NM
Coords, consider doing a set/location or set/qra"?

Based on the responses I'm getting from the SH/H command, it really
*is* using my coordinates, and not the N8NM coordinates as shown.
This is borne out from the output of another SH/STA command:

sh/sta n8nm
