Nick, you are most welcome. I haven't even gone into the whole datum thing 
which are different 'models' of the world and give different co-ordinates. 
I think melbwireless unofficially uses AGD66 which is what Melways and 
VicMap also use but I don't think its stated anywhere.

I'd be happy for the above information to be posted somewhere if it is 
useful. It'd be my first real contribution to melbwireless in a while. :) 
Actually just checked the website for the first time in a while and my node 
(AIE) has dropped off the list, not sure why.
