Blue screen: Spot color in King of Spain contest
- In the Bandmap and Available windows, N1MM Logger's color for spots in not yet worked multiplier regions is red, and this allows us to jump from multi to multi using Ctrl+Alt+up/down, a really nice feature. At the beginning of a contest everything is red, and at the end any red spots stand out clearly.
In the King of Spain contest, both the 52 Spanish provinces as well as the DXCC countries are multipliers - quite simple. The coloring, however, is almost reversed: All calls start in blue, Spanish provinces turn red only if already logged on another band (and so N1MM is sure if it's a multi or not), and DXCC countries NEVER turn red. So the nice multi-hopping is very much impaired, even though the colors are OK in the QSO window.
I've observed this already in the past three years, and now again with 13.4.5. I guess it's because both types of multis are handled separately: Mult and Mult2. For the "end user" during the contest, however, there should be no difference.
