      New versions of VHF Super Partial Check, and Prefill Databases for the ARRL
      September VHF Contest are now available at:

      ======================================

      Release 2011.09.03.00 - Release Notes

      ======================================

      Substantial improvements to the VHF Databases were implemented with this
      Release. To be included, a call must appear in 2 or more logs. All calls
      with an Occurrence Count = 1 were deleted. This substantially reduced the
      number of Not-Issued or "Busted" calls.

      The second improvement is that after the Database Tables have been
      generated, and the Calls with Occurrence Count=1 deleted, all remaining
      calls were vetted against the QRZ Database using QRZ's XML Access.
      Unfortunately the software only produces a list of calls that must then be
      queried via the QRZ WEB Interface. The XML and WEB Databases do not
      necessarily contain the same information. My thanks go again to John, N4XI
      for the software improvements.

      Lefty, K1TOL, once again extensively reviewed the Database and sent several
      hundreds of corrections.

      As a result, the number of calls in the Super Partial Check Database was
      reduced from over 12,742 to 8,580, and the number of calls in the Prefill
      Database was reduced from 12,339 to 8,166 calls.

      While it's fresh in your mind, please send copies of your September Cabrillo
      after the Contest. There will no Release before the January VHF Contest.
      The next Release will be before the June 2012 VHF Contest - at which time
      the Database will be started from scratch with only 2010, 2011, and Jan 2012
      Logs.

      The .DTA and .SCP Files support Super Check Partial for the CT, KC6TEU,
      N1MM, NA, RoverLog, UcxLog, Win-Test, and WriteLog Contest Logging Software.

      The N1MM File will allow the N1MM Software to Prefill the Grid Square.

      The RoverLog.LUP file will allow the RoverLog Software to Prefill the Grid
      Square.

      The W3KM file will allow VHFLOG to Prefill the Grid Square.

      The .DTB File supports the Win-Test Software "Exchange Guessing".
