"long organization names were a problem, such as VERON and MRASZ. The field
only allows 4 characters..."
NA has been this way since 1989 and the contest sponsors don't complain.
If we made it five digits, how would we handle six? This could go
ad-nauseum. Ain't broke, don't fix it.
"let's say I'd worked a mult on 20, 15, and 10, and was now on 40. If I
entered a station's call that was that mult and hit the space bar, I'd get
"CHECK MULT: xx needed on 160 160 80" where xx was the zone or org name.
This redundant 160 thing was prevalent throughout the contest."
Yup - yet more fallout from the added mode. Already fixed in 10.31.
