New master callsign databases have been uploaded to:


     MASTER.DTA with 17,084 callsigns both US and DX. For use by DX
stations in CQWW, WAE, and
     everyone in IARU and WPX - updated 12 October 1998 

     MASTER.DTA with 12,403 callsigns only DX, VE and US possessions (KH2,
KP2, etc. - no USA). 
     For use by stateside stations in CQWW and ARRL DX - updated 12 October

     MASTER.DTA with 5,202 callsigns only US, VE and US possessions (KH2,
KP2, etc.). For use in 
     ARRL Sweepstakes - updated October 12, 1998 

     MASTER.DTA with 5,057 callsigns only US and VE (no possessions). For
use by DX stations in 
     ARRL DX - updated 12 October 1998 

640 logs from the 1997-98 contest season were used to build these
databases, representing 81893 callsigns, 43932 of which were non-unique.  A
callsign has to show up in 10 logs to be added to the database.  The top-10
callsigns to appear in logs:

1046 EA8ZS
1053 IQ4A
1115 6D2X
1147 V47KP
1175 HG1S
1237 FS5PL
1242 WP2Z
1245 V26B
1327 KH7R
1526 9A1A

W3LPL was the top USA station showing up 645 times.

If you want to make this database better, send me your original contest
logs as an attachment.  I will try to update the database up until a day or
two before the contest.

Thanks to everyone who sent me data for this project - too many to mention
individually.  EVERYONE appreciates your contribution, no matter how small!

p.s. country files tomorrow night, I hope.  This project took me longer
than expected.
