A certain VE2 sent me Zone 2 (clearly, and also to the guy after me), but the 
cty file gave Zone 5.  Of course, I logged "2" (and added a note that he really 
sent 2).  Both Zones were mults (I was just fooling around in the Test, and did 
not bother to work the W/K zones, so might not have another Zone 5).

So, what happens when the CQ Committee log checking software gets hold of my 
log?  If they think he is really Zone 5...

Will they ding me for bad data (not likely; I think they will recognize that he 
was sending 2)?

Will they delete the Zone 2 mult (that's fair)?

And, here's the rub, will they give me the Zone 5 mult.

With my 60K-and-I-don't-care score this question is academic, but I'd like to 
know.  And it might matter to some one some time.

(BTW, the answers do not depend on whether you were using one, two or three 
radios.  :>)  )
