In this release

- to improve readability, uses abbreviations in the Need filter button's explanatory popup

- remove the "determine the DXCC entity from the 5th character in a 6-character VK9 callsign"  rule (tnx to Björn SM7IUN and Joe
W4TV)

- prevent errlog.txt file entry "overflow at state 23 in SpotDatabaseModule.UpdateSpotDatabaseDisplayLayout" with a wide
SpotCollector Main window

- when an override doesn't specify a grid square, populates the resulting Spot Database Entry's Azimuth field with a heading to the
DXCC entity, and leaves its DXGrid field blank (tnx to Max NG7M, Iain N6ML, Chad WE9V, and Joe W4TV)

- updates the ConfigurationSpecialCallsigns.htm, SpotDatabase.htm, and WebBrowser.htm documentation files
