contesters. This database contains over 13,000 calls at
present and continues to grow. During a contest most
stations worked will already be in the database and once
you enter the call, the balance of the info will be displayed

wear and tear on your writing or typing fingers.

the (F3) key and a pop-up window asks for the call and
the 10-10 number will be given. Hit the (F5) key and enter
the 10-10 number and the call will be displayed. The
Master List’ is updated monthly.
