No,  the  problem  is:  Asian stations were referred to European zone.
That's it!

Apparently  this is the easiest solution, and the worst. I do not know
anyone  here  who gives 16 th zone in the contests. Definitely we will
go on with zone 17 in the future, so let's leave it as is.

Being  technically  correct,  yes, they are in zone 16. Being mentally
correct, they must be in zone 17, as far as they are in Asia.
