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

Question - have you used a womley (W0MLY) remote antenna switch running with
your state of the art computer CONTEST software. If you have used this beast
with CT/NA/TR whatever...lemme know how you translated the bandswitching
information at the LPT port on your PC into the contol of the antenna

I have a womley and I have some sota software, and I am wondering how easily
I can make my computer do my antenna switching - also, do you have an
overide back to manual control, etc....thanks. I of course am wanting my
computer to now switch my ICE multiband filter, too....if I can get the
antenna selection part going I suspect the ICE filter will be a piece of
cake. I have gotten a taste of this computer/rig control and I want it all! 

        Please reply to:   k1zx@mcimail.com

Tried to send this direct, but it bounced!
I own an IC-765 and an IC-775/DSP.  We also regularly use other IC-765's and
a TS-950SDX at N3RS.

This is just a nitpick, but the Canadian dollar isn't this worthless :-)
The US bn should be US million.
