Thanks for the suggestion.  Tried DU1/K6ACZ, K6ACZ/DU1, tried
temporarily removing my CT.CFG file to prevent having my address
automatically filled in and put Manila as my city and Philippines as
my country but still get the SECTION? box to fill in.  I won't worry
about it if it won't affect my score or logging.  I was concerned that
as DX I need to send a serial number as part of my report as opposed
to sending a state (CA) as part of my report if at home, and by doing
so I would screw up my log or score if I did not correctly enter my
section.  Others have suggested I put PAC, DX, or DU in the section
box when it asks for it.
Thanks for all the suggestions.  I will play around with it some more
but thought maybe someone else had the answer.
Thanks and 73
