Yes, that does work. However, it seems to not follow rule #3 in your previous post:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. When the call is entered the country is calculated from the prefix and the grid reference for the centre of that country is used

2.If the call sign is listed in the special call list or Clublog database then any grid reference supplied by that database is substituted for that derived in 1 above

3. If no grid reference is found in 2 above and the user is using an external on line lookup service like QRZ, HamQTH or QRZCQ then any grid locator supplied by that lookup replaces that derived in 1 above.

Nice point
I'm adding an exception for external sources... if locator is set to "default center of the world" ignore it.
