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.
