Dear Raino,

The program I mentioned is written by a colleague from Mathematical
Department of Faculty of Science here in Zagreb, Croatia. It have done
pretty well for me, and it could do the conversions for the whole UTM grid
(not just some country, like other programs I've seen). The maximum
precision is 100x100 m UTM quadrat, although you have to have pretty
accurate lat/long's for this.

I can send you the program via MIME (it is freely distributed here), but
maybe it will be better if I put it on some FTP server here, and you and
anyone else interested can download it (I am sending this on taxacom also).

The version I have is a PC/DOS program, although it works well under Windows
(in a window or full screen, no matter).

See it on ftp://avalon.irb.hr/incoming/strpic/utm.exe.

And please let me know how it works for you!

New Year's greetings,     Vid.
