Writelog had the same problem, and it's complicated by the fact
that 'VERON' is the legitimate HQ abbreviation for PA6HQ in the 
Netherlands, while 'VERONA'  is a different multiplier, for PJ2HQ
in the Netherlands Antilles. Thus, the truncation is liable to go 
uncaught with automated checking.

BTW, QSL for PJ2HQ is via N9AG.
