Yes, same here. Not an expert but you would think that logging programs
rather than contest logging programs would pick out the relevant ADIF spec 6
character data. In the case of Logger 32 (V2.4) it plucked out the 5
character data instead. Perhaps uses of other programs who have imported
their IOTA logs from SD would like to comment on how their imports went?
Perhaps it's down to the fact that the <IOTA:5> string appears first in the
line so that's the one Logger 32 chose.
