    You need to enter the longitude and latitude in the degrees, minutes, seconds format not in decimal format
    For example, my location in decimal is 49.0301 N, 118.4451 W but to enter it into VMA it needs to be 49° 1' 48" N, 118° 26' 42" W
    Use this to convert if needed. https://www.fcc.gov/media/radio/dms-decimal
