The answer is simple. I check the logs for the IARU contest. How do I know
what these stations sent? I have lots of information to determine that. I
have the data in all of the received logs.
In the cast of CP4BT - I have this data:
1 14 CP
9 12 CP
This means one station had CP4BT in his log with zone 14 - and nine people had
it with zone 12. The software decided that zone 12 was the correct one and
put CP4BT in the database with that zone.
5 15 PY
1 11 PY
Similar situation - 5 people had zone 15 - one had zone 11.
2 11 PY
1 15 PY
1 13 PY
In this case - the software on its own would have not made a decision about
the zone - however, PY7OJ sent in his log:
QSO: 21000 CW 2009-07-11 1900 PY7OJ 599 13 CX1AA 599 RCU 0
QSO: 14000 CW 2009-07-11 1905 PY7OJ 599 13 SK9HQ 599 SSA 0
QSO: 14000 CW 2009-07-11 1906 PY7OJ 599 13 ZW5HQ 599 LABRE 0
