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.

Hello Alastair,

K9W has been added to the Wake Island list in the most recent cty.dat file, which will be included in the next xlog release (or a more recent one if it exists). I can see it specifically in the 20131009 release, and there is one release more recent.

One can get this file for themselves from here:

grep VER cty.dat
(shows the version of the file)

Put the file in this location:
depending upon where your xlog has been installed.

Have a lot of fun, and 73,
