New country files dated 10/12/95 10:44 have been released.

You can get them from:

1.  Send a message to, and in the body of
    the message put one or more of the following commands:

	GET cqww.cty
	GET arrl.cty
	GET iaru.cty
	GET ctyhdg.pre
	GET cty.dat	
	GET history.cty

    CTY.ZIP will be sent UUencoded, and includes all the files above.

2.  Anonymous FTP from the following sites:

    ATTN NETSCAPE USERS:  When I attempted to get the file
    from K2MM, I got the April file instead of the October file.
    Anonymous FTP worked OK, though.  If you get the wrong file
    (the October file is 78114 bytes), send a message to John

3.  Update your copy of CT on the CT BBS (508-460-8877).  CTY-504.EXE
    will be included in the update - just type CTY-504 to extract the
    country files.

    Or just download the file CTY-504.EXE

    I have not been able to get into the CT BBS since uploading the
    file.  If you don't get CTY-504 with your CT update, or you get
    other CTY files, send a message to K1EA (
    and tell him what the problem is, so he can fix it - I can not.

4.  Download the file CTY-504.ZIP from the DX BBS (502-898-8864).

Here are the release notes from the last couple of revisions.  Note that 
African Italy, IG9, was added to the country files in April.  If you are using 
CT8, and have not upgraded recently, you should also download CTYHDG.PRE which 
adds this new prefix.
