Hello Bob,
Although some HQ stations may be using identical abbreviations, in the  
final results, the log checkers should credit them as separate  multipliers.  
In other words, having WT see them as the same multiplier  should not matter 
in the final analysis.
73, George.

Sorting _the list_ (http://bit.ly/itudtb)  by HQ abbreviation, I found that 
some HQ stations  are using the same HQ abbreviation, but they are in 
different countries.   They should be counted as different multipliers, but 
unfortunately Win-Test  4.17 sees them as the same multiplier:  

ER7HQ          ARM       H - ER
XX9A            ARM       - - XX9
C4HQ  *        CARS      H - 5B
ZF1A  *        CARS      - - ZF
4V0HQ *        RCH  H - HH
HQ2W            RCH       - - HR
HQ50RCH        RCH  - - HR
OA4O  *        RCP       H - OA
ZP5AA          RCP       - - ZP

* Listed as active for IARU  2015 at http://www.dailydx.com/IARU-2015.htm

The one to watch out for is C4HQ and ZF1A, both active this weekend, both  
sending CARS (unless one can be convinced to use something else).

See _Task #350_ (http://flyspray.win-test.com/index.php?do=details&id=350)  
(opened last year).  I wish I had  remembered to send a reminder about this 
sooner; it's probably too late to fix  it for this weekend, so you'll have 
to handle it some other way.

Suggested work-around:  Log C4HQ as CARSC and ZF1A as CARSZ to  calculate a 
score, then edit the Cabrillo file before emailing.

Bob,  N6TV
