this is the last release before the cqww-cw, as I am preparing my trip to 
AF-073 for the contest. We will be operating M/2 with the call TS7N. Also 
lots of activity before the contest :-)

Main changes with respect to version 0.9.7 is the addition of the :SYNC and 
the :REScore commands, which have been requested for ages...

Also managed to fix the /MM bug Martin pointed out. I hope I interpret the 
rules in the right way: they say that an /MM station does NOT have a country 
multiplier, but it DOES have a Zone multiplier. There is no mention of /MM in 
the points section, so I guess I get the points like a stationary station. 
For this I calculate the continent from the zone info out of the exchange. 
When W1XX works LA7XX/MM in zone 3, he gets 2 points as zone 3 is in NA.

>From the README:


- Changed time-to-live default for DX spots to 30 minutes. This can be changed 
at compile time with the MAXMINUTES constant in cluster_bg.h

- Added station ID to log line when logging from different nodes in the 
        This enables post-contest analysis and log massage after the contest.
        CQWW_M2 must be set in logcfg.dat for this.

- Added qso number and NODE ID to note in log for post contest analysis.

- Added code to prevent double node id's in the network. If tlf hears it's own 
node id on the network, it will ask for another one.

- Added :SYNc command, which will resync the logfile and recalculate the score 
without restarting the program. The automatic resync at program restart has 
been disabled, as it was generating too many problems. So the only way to 
resync the log is using the :SYNC command. Set SYNCFILE=<xxx> in logcfg.dat

- Added :REScore command, which will recalculate the score without having to 
restart the program.

- Bug fix: /MM and /AM stations now have no country (no country multiplier 
value for cqww, only the zone), but do count for points. Tlf tries to 
calculate the continent from the zone. This is necessary to calculate the 
I will have lots of time for bug fixes after my trip, so please send a test 

73, and good luck in the contest!!
CU in the pile-up.
