OK so as I read this tread K5ZD IS OK in Zone 4 or 5 but
W5QQQ is only good in zone 3 or 4 becauze thats where the call shows. and
thats ALL she is gonna give out is zone 3
??? Sure don't make sence to me , WHY bother with RS its gonna be 59 and
the zone doesn't matter unless the Log checking software says where it is ??
