Because he now has a seven-land call, lives in Nevada, and owns a casino.
 And he does enter contests...I just can't remember his U.S. call.  He was at
Visalia this year with a jacket with that call on the back of it.  The logo
under his call read, "Dats a Lot of Dits".

The C4 is just a 40-m shortened dipole placed on a lengthened boom with
the C-3 (presumably) whre interaction will be least.  C4XL is a 2-el 40
interlaced with a C-3.  It's a lot of money, but attractive from the
standpoint of low wind and mechanical load.  Maybe next year.

You need to update the CT 9 CTY.DAT file, these are the few mods :

Italy:                    15:  28:  EU:   41.90:   -12.50:    -1.0:  I:
Italy (Africa):           33:  37:  AF:   35.40:   -12.50:    -1.0:  *IG9:
Sicily:                   15:  28:  EU:   37.50:   -14.00:    -1.0:  *IT9:

Please check also the IT9 (Sicily) configuration, you must delete the  IG9 &
IH9 prefix reference. Do not forget to add the * that identify the multiplier
validity only for the CQWW Contests.
The CT 8 user can modify the CQWW.CTY file in these way :

Italy:                    15:  I:     I;
Italy (Africa):           33:  IG9:   IG9,IH9;
Sicily:                   15:  IT9:   IB9,ID9,IE9,IF9,II9,IJ9,IO9,IQ9,IR9,IT9
&                                     IU9,IZ9;
If you want download all the files, send a message to :


In the body of the message put the commands:

GET cqww.cty
GET arrl.cty
GET iaru.cty
GET cty.dat
GET history.cty
