I have uploaded a new SEC.DAT to the CT web site:
There is also a ct-dat.zip file there which includes all the section files
in one convenient package.
This edition supports the "Northern Territories" multiplier as defined by
ARRL. There are a number of accepted abbreviations for NT - see the SEC.DAT
file. North Texas is now covered by "NTE" or "NTX" (previously just "NT"
"(2) The Northwest Territories (NWT) multiplier has been renamed "Northern
Territories" (NT) for contests that use the ARRL and Radio Amateurs of
Canada (RAC) section as part of the exchange. "While not an official RAC
section, the territories of VE8, VY1 and VY0 (Northwest Territories, Yukon
and Nunavut) are grouped together as a multiplier in the ARRL November
Sweepstakes and the ARRL 160-Meter Contest," Henderson explained. "The new
name and abbreviation will more accurately describe their makeup."
Henderson said use of the NWT abbreviation was inconsistent to designate a
multiplier that also included Yukon and Nunavut. Awards for ARRL-sponsored
contests will continue to be issued to the VE8, VY1 and VY0 together as the
Northern Territories section."
