This release

- correctly persists changes to the order of columns in the MyQTH grid on the Main window's "my QTHs" tab

- correctly handles relocation of a column in the MyQTH grid on the Main window's "my QTHs" tab

- correctly includes satellite QSOs on 13cm and up in VUCC realtime award progress (tnx to Lucky VU2LBW)

- in the CQ DX Marathon, counts SSTV for Phone, not Digital

- when deleting a QSO that contains invalid fields, doesn't make additional panels visible on the Main window's "Log QSOs" tab

- sends correct status to SpotCollector after you log a QSO whose CQ Zone-Band-Mode has been granted WAZ award credit (tnx to Dale
AA1QD)

- corrects an instance where the "Warn when a callbook lookup returns 'callsign not found' " option was ignored

- changes the order in which callsigns are looked up when a Secondary Callbook is enabled on the Configuration window's Callbook
tab: (tnx to Björn SM7IUN):

1. query the primary callbook for the full callsign, e.g. AA6YQ/FO

2. If query 1 fails, query the secondary callbook for the full callsign, e.g. AA6YQ/FO

3. If query 2 fails, query the primary callbook for the base callsign, e.g. AA6YQ

4. If query 3 fails, query the secondary callbook for the base callsign, e.g. AA6YQ

- appends two new sections to the USA-CA Progress Report: "Unworked Counties" and "Statistics by State" (tnx to Frank G4HBI)

- updates the Secondary Subdivision to change the name of "Shannon County" to "Oglala Lakota County" (tnx to Dennis KK7X, Dave
WD0BMS, and Frank G4HBI)

- updates the Progress.htm documentation file

3. To repair any incorrect Spot Database entries caused by the "sends incorrect status to SpotCollector after you log a QSO whose CQ
Zone-Band-Mode has been granted WAZ award credit" defect noted above, click the Recompute button in the Recomputation panel on the
