Excellent clarifications, Goetz.  

I ran some example QSOs through WriteLog and USA call areas are handled just
as you describe below.  The distance scoring also seems to be implemented
according to the table.

It is not necessary that loggers calculate score perfectly since DRCG log
checking is the final authority, but it's nice to have consistency and see
realistic scoring during the contest.

Hello Ed and all,

1. The rules make no distinction between ASSISTED and NON-ASSISTED.
   So the use of clusters, skimmers is up to the operators.
2. The primary source to determine the USA call area is the cty_wt.dat.
   If an USA call has an entry in this file its information is used for the
   call area multiplier (and zone for QSO points).
   If there is NO entry in the cty_wt.dat then the number in the callsign
   determines the call area.
