I hate to harp on it, but I would advise everyone who used CT to double 
check the scoring for their maritime mobile Qs from this last wknd.  Here's
just one example from my teeny log:
I wrkd AA5DX/MM on 10.  He was my first zone 33.  CT correctly gave me 
the zone mult, but it also gave me the USA mult even though I had not yet 
wrkd a "real" US stn.  Fortunately, I realized this at the time, but I 
would have really felt stupid if I hadn't worked another "real" US stn 
later, and ended up losing a mult!
Of course, as some folks pointed out in response to my earlier posting, 
as long as you work another QSO from the /MM stn's home country, the 
mults all work out in the wash.  What I didn't make very clear last time 
was the fact that the *QSO POINTS* CAN STILL BE OFF--CT gave me ZERO points 
for the AA5DX/MM QSO (because AA5DX is from my own country), when it 
should have given me THREE points.
I can easily fix the scoring on my printed log with an ASCII editor, but 
I'm not really sure how to change the .BIN file to reflect the same score.
Any thoughts?
Again, I hate to belabor this issue.  I just don't want anyone to lose 
any hard-earned points (or gain any "non-earned" points, for that matter!).
73, Tim

W6QHS single op/single band 15m:  759Q x (33Z + 102C) = 290,655

Rotten conditions from here to EU, high winds and power outages...]
having fun yet?  I miss the good sunspots!  Still fun, though.

Cheers de Dave, W6QHS

After some rig problems here is the bottom line:
M/S - ops WB9TOW and N9LJX
Q 608 Z 107 C 274

I'll post breakdown later. Started with only 60 q's for first 10 hours.
Finally found that the rigs xmit was off by abt 1.5 kc. Suprised we got what
we did! Thisngs flowed well after that. Nice 10m opening Sunday morning. Able
to pick off mults barefoot.

Now how do I get my sleep patterns back in order???
