Hi Jim,

The problem is that the ARRL didn't archive the call sign of the station
It simply consists of a matrix of country and band/mode data.  So these 
dummy calls usually contain the country prefix, .e.g.  3ADUM.  
I handled 3D2/R  and  3D2/C by creating 3D2DUM0 & 3D2DUM1 for
each respectively.  Each maps to the appropriate country. Confused yet?

I have to do all this extra work all because I didn't have off-site backup.
I'll be looking into Clublog as recommended by John, K9EL.
