I notice two slight problrms with In the Commonwealth 
1.. As a GM, I am not allowed to contact another UK 
station e.g. a G, but if I enter a G station in SD it 
indicates a bonus situation.

2.. When I have worked a new country, only the first digit 
of that country changes in the countries worked window 

Ohterwise all well except for very slow going.
