      Hi Barry,

      The Beacon.lst file that comes with Faros does not have a header required in
      the DX Atlas files. To make the beacon list compatible with DX Atlas, you
      can add these three lines at the top of the file:

      #--------------------------------------
      #InternalUse|Longitude|Latitude|+Beacon
      #--------------------------------------


      Please see FileStru.txt in the DxAtlas folder for details.

      Alex,

      When I load beacon.lst in place of the island list, the map only shows
      15 of the 18 beacons in the list. Beacons not shown on the map follow:
      02|-13314|7335|4U1UN
      02|-15471|14397|VE8AT
      02|-21942|6687|W6WX
      Why aren't these K/VE beacons shown on the map?
