Would like a way to list Cache owners in a area alphabetical  for alpha numeric owner challenges

a couple challenge caches out there that require  you find  a cache  that owner starts with each letter or number of the alphabet ,  

i have been using the top hiders but it's sorted by number of hides , a alphabetical  search would  be better

use the advanced search and owner, start with and the letter you are looking for. notice that both owner and placed by are used and challenges might accept only one. And of cource limit the search to location you are interested in

Another way is to add all local caches to a vgps and order or group by owner or placed by. It is only for paying members and will be problmatic with a area of more then 10000 caches.

And I would also say that a local GSAK is the best way to find caches like this...

got it to work with 5,6, and 9    but for some reason it doesn't work for 0
Though I use PGC for a lot of research - I did use GSAK for that particular challenge
