If you have put your address correctly into your QRZ.com profile the locator will also be shown in the 'detail' tab of your page.
Another common locator asked for, especially when working inter-G, is the Worked All Britain (WAB) square. That is a 4 character code that is worked out by using the two letters and the first and fourth numbers of the Ordnance Survey grid code. E.g. my OS grid location is SP016006 so my WAB is SP00.

I tried the QRZ site, and it seems that it defaults to central London, which I presume is because I have an incomplete postcode in my address details, or that I use my mobile as a hotspot to get online, so there's no IP address details?

Glad it worked for you Simon. I couldn't find the one i used before you didn't have to zoom like that one but still it works. As long as you know where to look on the map unlike some (she is sat next to me) lol.
