The recent use of 3 character call signs, like K9W, causes xlog to miscalculate DXCC scoring. If there is an entry in the cty.dat file that adds K9W to the Wake Island list:


then if I type K9W into the callsign entry box, all calls of the form K9W** are then listed, which is OK. But all those additional calls are used in the DXCC scoring for Wake Island, even though they are just plain USA. One of those pesky bugs no one thought of when 3 character calls didn't exist.

Thanks to the devs for keeping this program alive. I have 40,000 QSO now in my general log, and xlog has no problem with stability.
