I'm trying to compile a list of MGRS 100km square identifiers for every such square (eg 4QFJ for Honolulu Hawaii); excluding the poles (85 to -85 latitudes).

Does anyone know of a dataset or can point me in a good direction?

You can download selected squares from Military Grid Reference System (MGRS): Downloads, or get a large grid file from GIS MGRS Grid Data layers in GIS Format.

These are likely to be free of copyright, since they are US Government publications.
