Yeah, TO4T is FG.  To fix this, you have to edit the COUNTRY.DAT file, then 
run the NA Utility Program (NAU.EXE) to crunch down the data into new 
CQ.CTY and DXCC.CTY files.  Takes five minutes.

We saw this same problem at K8CC and had to use the same workaround.  The 
problem comes because people don't want to see CW spots during an SSB 
contest and vica versa, and how do you tell on 160 or 40 whether a spot is 
CW or phone simply by the frequency data?  On all the other bands it can be 
done. (OK, maybe 80 is a little funny.)  I thought we had this one fixed 
but I guess not.  We'll have to take a look at this.
