With the 1998-1999 contest season fast approaching, it's time to update the 
master callsign database that is used by CT, NA and TR logging programs.  This 
database helps people match partial callsigns using their logging program's 
"Super Check Partial" feature, even if you haven't worked that call yet.

This year, I only need logs from the 1997-1998 contest season.  This includes:

        CQWW (October and November 1997)
        ARRL Sweepstakes (November 1997)
        ARRL DX (February and March 1998)
        CQ WPX (March and May 1998)
        IARU HF Championship (July 1998)

Of course, logs from the 10 meter and 160 meter contests, All Asia, WAE,
are also 

I especially need logs from Europe, Asia and the many DXpeditions that were 
active.  This way we'll get a good balance of stateside as well as DX 
callsigns in the database.

Don't worry about vanity callsigns - all US callsigns found in the database 
will be changed if a vanity callsign has been issued.

I prefer to receive original .BIN files from CT.  If you are using NA or TR, 
please send me the ASCII-formatted log file instead.  You can send the log 
file to me as an attachment from your E-mail program.  Please note the contest 
name, date and callsign used in your E-mail message (it makes it easier for me
to put the file in the right place).  I don't have an FTP site for
uploading log
files, but might be able to work something out if there is enough demand.

If you sent your CQWW log electronically, and you have a "UBN" page on the
cqww.com web server, just send me your password and I'll download the log
from there, no need to E-mail it to me.

About a week before the CQWW Phone contest, I will announce the location of the
updated master callsign files.

Please send logs and any comments or questions to <jjreisert@alum.mit.edu>.
 I will try to acknowledge every log I receive, usually within a day or two.

Thanks again for your continued cooperation in this effort.
