This isn't what I meant at all.

Regardless of what the rules may state regarding what KH6DX *should* have
been sending for an ID, is not the state field indicating "CA" data enough
for questioning where KH6DX is (or may be)?  This is the example that
sparked much of this discussion.  I don't think it takes any special manual
handling to "learn who is where" (learn from the logs, NOT from some
DXpedition list).  Again, respectfully, I suggest it's *just* another tweak
to be added to the checking algorithms.
