Four Corners is 109W02'0 37N00'0.00, which i represent as DM56lx/DM57la. 
  But LoTW won't take that.

I don't have an answer to your LOTW grid square problem, but I want to 
make sure everybody knows about the excellent grid square calculator 
available for download from the web site of Stacey Mills W4SM (former 
AO40 control operator).

I also like his "RF safety" and "Power Loss" calculator programs.
