Release 2011.06.01.00  - Release Notes

Many thanks to John Bennett, N4XI, who wrote Log Processing software for me
this year that substantially reduced my workload.

This Release was "zero based" to only include 2009, 2010, and 2011 Logs.
The previous release contained data dating back to 2005.  That is the reason
for the reduction in the size of the Database.

All files now begin with VHF_USA.  The next 3-to-7 letters describe the kind
of File Format or Target Logging Program.  The next 8 numbers are the
Release Date, and the last two numbers indicate that a newer release
occurred on the same day.  Normally the last two digits will be 00

The .DTA and .SCP Files support Super Check Partial for the CT, KC6TEU,
N1MM, NA, RoverLog, UcxLog, Win-Test, and WriteLog Contest Logging Software.

The N1MM File will allow the N1MM Software to display the Grid Square.

The RoverLog.LUP file supports RoverLog display of the Grid Square.

The W3KM file supports VHFLOG display of the Grid Square.

The .DTB File supports "Exchange Guessing" for Win-Test.

The EXCEL Format Files have been discontinued.  Those wishing to use the
Data in Excel can simply open the .CSV (Comma Delimited) File with EXCEL.
