4 (DN0x, DN1x, DN2x, DN3x and DN4x) would also be in Zone 6 except for
those parts of DN41,42, 43 and 44 that are in Wyoming.
Zone 7 would include the parts of DN41/42/43/44 that are in Wyoming, all US
locations in DL, DM and DN with a first digit in 5/6/7/8/9, and all US
locations in EL, EM and EN with a first digit in 0/1/2/3/4.
Zone 8 would be all US locations in EL, EM and EN with a first digit in
5/6/7/8/9, and all US locations in FM and FN.
