Maybe Tree can change the program so that
you have, as an example:
MY CALL = AA0CY/7 (sets the CQ & ITU zones correctly)
SENT CALL = AA0CY (for CW and Packet messages)

Seems that would solve this problem for many folks
assuming it is reasonably easy to implement in the code.

Does it socre the QSOs correctly?

I think you mean the CW memories send 5nn 6 as your exchange.

If you set your callsign as K5ZM/7 then the CW memories will be setup
with 5nn 6.  This will also set the scoring up correctly.

If you do not want to send K5ZM/7 all weekend you will have to 
edit all of the CW messages taht contain your callsign.

I would suggest that you do this:

2. Set MY ZONE = 6
3. Edit all of the CW messages that send your report - as there 
   are less of them to edit - than if you edit your callsign.

This will make sure your log is scored correctly and also
let you send 5NN 6 for an report.
