>I have put up a new WL_CTY.DAT on the web site to fix this:
I've already received several complaints. I did in fact see the
posting on the CQ-Contest reflector but it doesn't change my mind:
* CT and Writelog were DIFFERENT, now they are THE SAME.
* All the UA9S/W stations send Zone 17 anyway, so the country files for both
CT and Writelog ought to reflect this.
* CT uses the CQ Zone to determine the continent for scoring purposes, so by
putting them in Zone 17 (Asia) instead of Zone 16 (Europe), your
the contest will be correct. I don't know how Writelog
determines the continent,
but I'll bet it's the same.
* You still have to log what the other station sent. The zone in
the country file
is only a SUGGESTION.
