With the 1997-1998 contest season fast approaching, it's time to
update the master callsign database that is used by CT, NA and TR
logging programs.  This database helps people match partial callsigns
using their logging program's "Super Check Partial" feature, even if
you haven't worked that call yet.

This year, I only need logs from the 1996-1997 contest season.  This includes:

	CQWW (October and November 1996)
	ARRL Sweepstakes (November 1996)
	ARRL DX (February and March 1997)
	CQ WPX (March and May 1997)
	IARU HF Championship (July 1997)

Of course, logs from the 10 meter and 160 meter contests, All Asia,
WAE, are also welcome.

I especially need logs from Europe, Asia and the many DXpeditions that
were active.  This way we'll get a good balance of stateside as well
as DX callsigns in the database.

Don't worry about vanity callsigns - all US callsigns found in the
database will be changed if a vanity callsign has been issued.

I prefer to receive original .BIN files from CT.  If you are using NA
or TR, please send me the ASCII-formatted log file instead.  You can
send the log file to me as an attachment from your E-mail program.
Please note the contest name, date and callsign used in your E-mail
message (it makes it easier for me to put the file in the right
place).  I don't have an FTP site for uploading log files, but might
be able to work something out if there is enough demand.

About a week before the CQWW Phone contest, I will announce the
location of the updated master callsign files.

Please send logs and any comments or questions to
<jjreisert at alum.mit.edu>.  Do not use any old addresses you might have
for me.  I will try to acknowledge every log I receive, usually within
a day or two.

Thanks again for your continued cooperation in this effort.
