Hi Igor,

I can understand your issue.  However, the CTY.DAT file is not just for TR but
other programs, including DX Spider which should have every prefix imaginable.

I already support seperate versions for NA and Writelog (NA has a physical
limitation).  If TR needs a smaller file, I can do that too.  It's just more
work for me for not much benefit.
