: OE5OHO).  Not too long ago, someone pointed out how often T48K was getting 
: turned into TV8K (and it shows up in the database).  Now, we recently 
: received request from Ron, ND5S pointing out that ND5H (a callsign that is 
: not issued) shows up in the database every year, and when he calls stations 
: they often come back to ND5H!

One JA complained in every year that his JS3CTQ was appeard as JH3CTQ.
He confirmed that JH3CTQ had not been in major DX contests so JS3CTQ 
must be incorrectly copied as JH3CTQ. He asked Dave to remove JH3CTQ and he 
kindly remove it. However number of stations copied him wrong and send that 
log data again, so JH3CTQ has been appeared again in MASTER.DTA.

: In the interest of having the "cleanest" database possible, if anyone knows 
: of any problem calls in the database, please let us know.  In your note, 
: you'll have to make a pretty clear case why (or better yet, KNOW) you think 
: the call is bad, and even then we may check around.  No, before anybody 
: suggests it we're not taking KC1XX out of the database - not that Matt's 
: station needs any help! :-)

I hope this system will work then CTQ will be quite happy.
