[ct-user] How to put K5D into the CTY file

I looked at these files.  As I attempted on my own, they simply add the 
letters K5D to those listed under the KP5 entity.  Doing this will 
result in logging all real USA calls beginning with K5D, like K5DA, 
K5DSS, as KP5 and not USA.  This is exactly what I want to avoid.  Is 
there a way of listing the exact call K5D and only K5D under the KP5 
listing to avoid this problem. 

There also exists the problem that in the future when the call K5D is 
re-assigned to a US based special events station CT will forever be 
unable to correctly classify its entity.
