Maybe we need to develope and spread a new set of abbreviations in the
cases of onflicting ones.  LAX - LA   SD -SDG  are certainly at the top
of the error list.
Why couldn't Los Angeles be  LOS ?  Are these abbreviations actually
publlished official ARRL abbreviations or what has developed as
standards fom logging programs.
