      Dear Mark,

      The callsigns starting with VP8 do not contain enough information in them
      for unambiguous identification of station's DXCC entity, you must tell the
      software what entity VP8ORK is. To do so, open the CallDxcc.lst file in
      Notepad and add the following line at the bottom of the file:

      VP8ORK=238


      238 is the ADIF code of South Orkney islands.

      On Windows XP the CallDxcc.lst file is located in the
      "C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Afreet\Reference\"
      folder, where <username> is your user name; on Windows 7 the file is in
      "C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Afreet\Reference" folder.

      I am trying to get HamCap to recognize that VP8ORK is South Orkney instead
      of the Falklands. I've tried VP8ORK, VP8/O, VP8-O, and VP8(O). None work.
      What is the proper format?
