you tried using the “Add Call to Country” feature under the
Tools menu in the Entry window?
to country –
Specify a country for the call-sign in the call-sign textbox
in the Entry window. If no call-sign is entered this menu
item will be grayed out. This is a quick way during the heat
of a contest to add a country temporarily, until the next
time you import wl_cty.dat. Making changes permanent
requires editing the country file (wl_cty.dat) to be

Pete and John,
Thanks for the input.
Pete, I am using the current WL-Cty.dat file. It was
installed today. And the issues still persist.
John, we too change the zone to what we copy BEFORE logging
the contact. Yes, I can change the zone in the Edit Contact
window but that does not change the country. For example, I
just logged VK9OOO. That call could be in zone 29, 30 or 32.
The program logged it as zone 32, Norfolk --- which is correct
BUT that call could have been in zone 29 or 30. For kicks, I
went into the Edit Contact window (it is not possible to
change the country prefix there as it is grayed out). I
changed the zone there to zone but the Countries window still
show the contact VK9N. If the zone change took, which it did,
the country should have changes to KL7.
The problems occurs in two different ways. One, there are
more than one country in the same zone. Two, the country can
be in one or more zone - HK0 can be ether zone 7 or 9. The
program defaults to zone 7 - HK0A. Changing the zone to 9
does NOT change the country to HK0M in either the Edit Contact
window of the Countries worked window.
If either of you would like to call me I can be reached by
phone at 206 935-0457. I can walk you through the procedure
to correctly identify the correct zones and countries.
