DxBase, for example, has the ability to classify prefixes by 
dates.  Other available logging programs may have this ability.  CT 
is not a DX logging program, it is a contest logging 
program.  Therefore, the time span is rarely more than 48 hours and 
any DX information is only relative to the period of the contest.
