I have uploaded new country files for CT.  They are compatible with TRLOG
as well.  If you are a user of K8CC's NA software, please wait for another
announcement - Dave and I haven't figured out how to coordinate this on the
NA web page yet.

Here's where you can find the country files right now:


Or, send E-mail to ct-user-REQUEST at contesting.com and put one more of the
following commands in the BODY of the message:

Also available by anonymous FTP to (note:  these are NOT URLs):


Or download CTY-702.ZIP from the DX BBS - 1-901-641-0230.  CTY-702 may
show up on the CT BBS some day, but not today.

Finally, here is the
revision history.  The complete revision history can be found at:
