K0TI, Dan, was the main honcho getting this worked out and 
posted.  He deserves the credit.  I will quote what he sent:
"I did not do extensive testing, only enough to come to the above
conclusions. I tested this with version 10.04.01 for DOS, I assume the CTWIN
version would act the same. Further testing might reveal other problems.
I have placed a copy of the ar10.dat I experimented with on the web.

A screen shot:
As you can see I just put the XE states in the places where there were
blanks before. A complete change in the layout could be done, but you are
limited to 12 columns and 10 rows in any case.

The SPECIAL cty.dat file:

I have tested these with my latest version CTWin and can see no 
problems; however, I only do CW.  But I doubt that going SSB or Mixed 
will create any problems either.  Good luck, have fun, and I hope to 
see you there.
