Thank you for the answers,

I anticipated this answer from Randy and I really understand what the CQWW 
contest committee wants.

Really Win-Test should solve this issue - good old CT had a function where you 
could assign a different DXCC country from the QSO entry line (you just type 

Maybe I didn't really make the implications clear - the problem is not the zone 
or score, that's all neglectable and I know that the CQWW score robot will fix 
this - it's rather the mere fact that KL7 shows up as worked on that very band 
in my logging software and I'll have to memorize that fact when searching for 
mults - and I was looking for an easy workaround for this where I wouldn't have 
to go back into my log after the contest and change something.

This question has come up several times so I will answer it here.

You should log the call sign as sent.

The log checking software will handle placing the call in the right country (or 
judging if the call sign is not correct).

True, your logging software doesn't seem to count your score correctly, but 
that is not a factor for the contest committee since the Cabrillo format 
doesn't mark multipliers.  As mentioned above, we will recalculate the score of 
all logs submitted.

As I said in the webinar.  Put your log in Cabrillo format and send it in.
