So, you will have to determine your grid square on your own, if you don't know it. Generally, you are in FN13 if you are North of the 43rd paralell, and East of the 77th meridian. You are in FN12 if you are South of the 43rd paralell and East of the 77th merid- ian. You are in FN03 if you are North of the 43rd paralell and West of the 77th meridian. You are in FN02 if you are South of the 43rd paralell and West of the 77th meridian. If you are unsure of your grid square, contact Tim Stoffel at the address/phone # elsewhere in thisone # elsewhere in this packet. The following list of local communities shows which grid square they lie in. If two grid squares are listed, the city is close to a border, and you will need to determine your grid square using a map.
