Tree has just made Version 4.10 of the N6TR Logging Program available to
licensed users via the N6TR BBS. The phone number is 503-658-6116, and can
handle up to 14.4kb, great for fast up/downloads.
Version 4.10 includes support for .CTY country files. Now we can use N6TR
and/or CT with consistent country support! Also, Tree is currently working on
developing support in his program for the K1EA Digital Voice Processor (DVP)
card, another slick function to look forward to.
FYI, to become a licensed user, send $40 US to:
15125 S. E. Bartell Rd.
Boring, Oregon 97009
73 and see you in the 160!

In agreeing with John, W0UN, on the requiring computer entries, I'm afraid
that the computer in the shack is not quite ubiquitous yet. Especially
for the younger ops who we MUST attract. Imagine KR0Y getting turned off
because he couldn't get access to a PC at home while in high school!! If
the contest sponsors can tough it out for a maybe as little as two years,
the technology on the way may make the issue moot by providing a large
amount of computing power to nearly every home. Maybe scanning technology
could also be used to at least cut down on the amount of keying in
required for each log.
Regarding categorization of scores as participant/competitor, I think that
the contest results should only indicate the status of the entry, and not
set up more fragmented listings, etc. The 10-meter contest listings with
all the categories are just about too densely packed with information as
it is. An asterisk or the equivalent would be fine.
Top Five boxes for a limited number of regions should be tried as an
experiment. Actually, it could be tried NOW, without waiting for next
year's scores, as an NCJ article. Any takers? Try it on the 1993 scores
and see how it works out.
