A new release of the VHF Callsign Database is available for the July CQ VHF
Contest.  The Release Number is 2010.07.11.00.  If there are any subsequent
releases before the July CQ VHF Contest, the last two digits of the Release
Number will change.

I would appreciate if contributors send me their Cabrillo Files after the
July CQ VHF Contest so that an update can be generated before the September
VHF Contest.

The Release Files can be downloaded from    www.k3lr.com/w9zrx/    .  The
trailing "/" is important.  The .DTB File may also be downloaded from

With this release the Database has grown from 13,820 to 15,898 Callsigns.
Please E-Mail any changes or correction to my E-Mail Address.

The Organization of Files at the Site Have Been Changed with the
2010.07.11.00 Release

The .DTA and .SCP Files support Super Check Partial for CT, N1MM, and
Win-Test.  Please send the other Contest Logging Programs that can use these
and the other Formats for Super Check Partial.

The .DTB File supports "Exchange Guessing" for Win-Test.  I would have used
the File Name VHF_USA_DTB_2010071100.zip, but this is the Name Format is
examined daily by the Win-Test WEB Site.  , The File is automatically copied
to the Win-Test WEB Site when the File Date Changes. 

The EXCEL Format Files are provided for those who wish to make other use of
the Data.
