Welcome back to Jim Curtis N8HAM who resumes submitting band/mode slot totals
after at least two years of absence.

General Logger Announcement (as it pertains specifically to the CCA Top Lists):

We have now finally determined the Logger version number ranges in which there were
band/mode slot summing calculation errors that began in July 2018 and were present
through May 2019. Specifically, Logger versions 5109 (7/24/2018) through 5124
(11/21/2018) produced inflated Digital modes 20m slot totals which was repaired in
release 5125 (12/29/2018) but then in this version through 5142 (5/9/2019) there were
other miscellaneous slot summing calculation errors that appeared during the first part
of 2019 and were not all addressed and repaired until release 5143. Logger version
5143 is the first release since 5109 in which all slot summing calculation errors were
eliminated.

SPECIAL RECOGNITIONS:

With Gene Barnes K5GE's submission to the Top Lists this month, he becomes only the
second county hunter ever to achieve Mixed Modes 40m Worked All 3077 Counties,
as well as the very first county hunter to achieve Phone Modes CCA Level IV.

With Ed Wojtowicz K8QWY's submission to the Top Lists this month, he achieves the
Digital modes #1 band slot positions on 80m, 40m, 30m, 17m, 15m, 12m and 10m
(7 out of 10 bands), as well as the #3 band slot positions on 160m and 6m.

These are amazing achievements! Many congratulations to both Gene and Ed and thank
you both for participating in the CCA Top Lists.
