The country files for CT/NA/TR are updated on the CT web site:


You can also get them via E-mail:

	To: ct-user-REQUEST@contesting.com	

	GET cty.dat
	GET history.cty

I E-mailed the update to Dave, K8CC, it should be up on the
http://www.contesting.com/datom/ site shortly.

Note that there were COUNTRY changes this time around, so if you are using
CT 8 or earlier,and you run CTYHDG to put the beam headings into your
country file, you MUST download the updated CTYHDG.PRE file also.
