According to Bob Cox, K3EST, UA9T (same oblast as UA9S) will also be 
scored as CQ Zone 16 so this version reflects that.  UA9[S,T,W] are 
now all CQ Zone 16 by default.

Good luck this weekend.

I thought I was told that the Ural river separates Europe from Asia and
flows through the Orenburg oblast (UA9S/T). So a UA9S or UA9T prefix can
be assigned to either side of the river (Europe zone 16 or Asia zone
17). So does this change really make sense if some of the real zone 17
stations are suddenly chnaged to zone 16. Is there any info out there
how many of those UA9S/T really are in zone 16? Updating country files
seems like a nightmare to me and all I can do is to thank Jim for doing
a good job.
