Misfeatures fixed

  • SkookumLogger was crashing when attempting to determine the Commonwealth Call Area (CCA) for malformed call signs. This bug affected only the RSGB Commonwealth contest (aka BERU). In addition, SkookumLogger no longer identifies non-commonwealth calls as needed, and handles HQ entrants per-CCA instead of only for UK&CD. Thanks GØDVJ and G4AJY.
  • VAQP In VA was marking QSOs with stations in VA as suspect. Thanks W2RU.
  • RDXC was counting QSOs with UA, UA2, UA9 as country multipliers. Also mobile-marine stations are now identified, assigned correct QSO points, and not considered as multipliers.
  • Export to ADIF of the DXCC entity number was broken by the change in QSO information introduced in the previous release. Thanks GØDVJ.

The latest version of SkookumLogger is available free of charge for download here.
