Hi again

Actually, the idea was not to compile your own files only, but rather to 
compile different logs, like K5ZD does. Except that today, Randy does 
not generate a file for every contest or mode. There is a space for an 
automated public service here, from Cabrillo files submissions ;-)  Any 
volunteer in the room ?

"Too many options. Too much confusion" ;-)

Well, if the exchange doesn't show up, it means the callsign is *not* in 
the DTB file... But, we should not count on the inclusion of the 
callsign in the DTB file to think that "it is correct". Today, we are 
biased because the DTB files are not *complete* callbooks, except for 
some specific contests and DTB.

Have fun !
