I am not going back over 1000's of emails but the question was about 
zones and the answer was to log the correct zone.

Why is this even a question?  KL7 is not in 003  or 005.  The rules call 
for the zone.  If we know G3XXX is in 14 then that is what goes in the box.

N2NT has even spoke up and said no biggie that the log checking would 
fix it anyway so with DX it really didn't what they sent. Same with CQ 
WW right?  If you copy zone 40 and the guy is in zone 14 you don't get 
credit for zone 40.
