When a spot goes to band map, the received report (zone/state) displayed there is taken from tdatabase and not from the real log.

For example, K6ND is logged frmom MA. The database ARRL-ALL.DTB has this station located in CA. So K6ND gets into the log with correct information but the band map displays this spot as \"CA\". It is also true when this spot is added to the band map using ctrl-Enter.

=> I can\'t reproduce this :-( The band map displays MA here. (Tested in a CQWW 160 log, but I suspect it is not related)


It is also true when this spot is added to the band map using ctrl-Enter

=> It\'s a known limitation when the callsign hasn\'t been already logged.

You are right Laurent; I made some comments during the contest but looking at the matter afterwards shows a slightly different picture. Sorry about that.

So, I think we can agree on this: (a) If the station is logged, the display of the state is correct (but useless). (b) If the station is not logged and sent to the band map using ctrl-Enter (b1) it is contained in the database, then the database information is shown instead of the value contained in the received report field. (b2) it is not contained in the database, then no information is displayed, even if it was entered in the received report field (c) same as (b) when the station gets reported by packet.

You are right on (a). If (b) and (c) are a known limitation I would like to motivate you to improve it.
