I've replaced IOTA.LST with new iota.lst, message2, but SD won't recognise
the new call sign entries. Is anyone else having similar problems or am I
missing something?

IOTA.LST is a standard text file.  If the text displays in
your browser, select the text (Ctrl-A), then copy it (Ctrl-C).
It will be copied to Windows clipboard.

Then open NotePad or any other text editor and paste (Ctrl-V)
the already-copied text to a new file (from the clipboard).
Save the new file as IOTA.LST in your SD folder to replace
any existing file of the same name.  In NotePad, if you try
to save the file as type "Text Documents (*.txt)" (the
default), NotePad will add a .TXT extension. You don't want
that!  Save the file as type "All Files (*.*)" and no .TXT
extension will be added.

You MUST check that the saved file is named IOTA.LST, and
not anything else - such as IOTA.LST.TXT.  You may not be
able to confirm this unless all file extensions are visible.
Please refer to the manual SD.PDF - "File Extensions" at
the top of page 3.  If necessary, rename the file as
IOTA.LST.  To find out how to rename a file, search Google
for rename file Windows.

Ctrl-A, C and V are standard Windows shortcuts.

If SD does not seem to pre-fill the expected IOTA references,
then your IOTA.LST is an old one, or is in some other folder
(not C:\SD), or is not named IOTA.LST.

If you're not familiar with all this, then practice on any
old text files.  If you're not sure how to do something,
Google and YouTube are your friends.
