I saw a number of stations in the recent IARU contest handing out different zones than the default which showed in Scott’s program. I always, whether needed or not, download Jim’s latest update to be sure prior to each contest.
My logic was just log as told on the air. It could always be a “troll” check log from the sponsors, looking for assisted stations and submitting in another category (i.e. non-assisted). The one’s I noticed most were in US zone 5 along with a couple of EU. I also noticed an HQ station giving a zone rather than the HQ acronym. I hope these are not singled out and docked in the log check and scoring.

His city as listed is in Asia it is east of the dividing line of Europe/Asia. The reason it shows up as European Russia is the 'G' after the '9". The Russian Federation says a 'G' is in European Russia. BUT his address is Clearly located in Asia. My question is why would a ham put a false address. Especially when hams would send him QSL cards with US dollars enclosed for a return card.
