[ct-user] Need AR10 files for XE states

Thanks to all especially K0TI for this CT mod for the 10m contest. I just
loaded it into a test with CTWIN 10.03.002 and it appears to be working

I will report if I have any problems after the contest.

I have been a CT user since 1987. CTWIN 10.03.002 has been very very stable
for me.

See you all on 10m this weekend.

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.
