Thanks for moving this over from the contesting.com on-line forums.
It's not currently supported. Ken would have to code this into the program.
I'm not sure that it's useful for contests. Here are a couple of reasons:
- every time you added/changed a callsign letter, CT would have to
query the server again. This I imagine would be very SLOW. The
MASTER.DTA file is hashed for faster lookups. That would not be
possible to do via an XML query (unless CT stored *every* intermediate
callsign that matched the partial, which defeats the purpose of
- you really want only the callsigns of ACTIVE contest stations in the
database, not EVERY callsign. Even master callsign databases with
over 20 to 25K callsigns are really pushing the limits of what's
considered "active" (IMO).
I can see where this might be useful for unique callsigns, but not enough to
consider it an essential function.
