Incorrect country, how to "fix"?

Post by G4AON » 25 Oct 2017, 12:31

My Skimmer picked up HF0HW and Log4OM reported a new DX country (for me) of South Shetland Is, I didn't get too excited as the call was a special event station from Poland. I worked the station, but the log is now showing I worked South Shetland Is... Is there an easy way to correct it?

Double click on the log entry for the QSO to bring up the edit window and change the country then click on save and exit!

The country file still needs correcting though, as it's reported as South Shetland Is in the cluster display.

The HF0 call is a special event call and can be used in several locations. With no start/end dates we don't know when it is effective and I don't read Polish. It is like the TO, TX, etc. series calls.

The HF0 prefix changed in March 2016 to Poland, although many lists still show it as Antarctica. Clublog gives the correct country.
