Hi Art,

Well, there's two possibilities.  (1) He really was in Zone 2 and 
therefore no problem. (2) He thought he was in Zone 2 but was really in 
Zone 5.

In the case of (2) I don't know what happens.  I'm assuming they aren't 
going to delete the QSO's in everyone's log because he sent the wrong 
zone; whether they correct it to Zone 5 in everyone's logs or not I don't 
know either.
