ALC is not a valid callsign...right?

*I kind of expected the program to accept the 3 character call sign and fill the remaining fields.
What's up with this? Thanks for any help.

Hi Gary,
 
What was the full callsign?  I don’t think an callsign starts with ALC#.

Why youbusing ACLog gor a QSO Party?  It’s best to use the software that goes with the event or contest.  ACLog is just for General everyday logging.

I'm pretty sure ALC is a county abbreviation.  The rovers add their county to their call signs. It makes it easy to follow their county changes. However, that is not part of the call.  The county abbreviation goes in the county slot.

N3FJP has a program written for the Florida QSO Party. That's what should be used for the Florida QP.
