@MarkSnodgrass laid it out exactly how I did it. Keep in mind that your data can grow rapidly. For example, right now you have 400 rows, 400 x 400 = 160,000. Bumping that up to 500 takes your total rows to 250,000. So be cautious when using this type of self join.

Agreed with the above. If you want to do it in Magic ETL and just need to see any distances greater than 1 mile you could do this:
 Join all 400 rows to each of the 400 rows (note this would be 160,000 rows of data)
 Compare each location to each other location using the DISTANCE() function
 You'll need the coordinates of each location to do this.
 You'll need to convert from KM to Miles by mulitplying the result by 0.621371
 Use a filter tile or filter in a card to only show those where distance > 1 mile

@ColemenWilson how do I compare each location for every location without having to write a formula for every location

You will want to change your join since you are comparing it to the same data set. Here is how I typically do it to get a row for every combination.
Use the add constants tile to create a column called JoinKey and set it to a value of 1. Do that twice. Connect them to the join tile and join on the JoinKey with an inner join. Rename columns so that you have your first and second coordinates. You will then have a row for each combination and then you can use your distance function.
