Total county slots submitted since 10-Aug-06: 236,918
New county slots submitted this month: 702 *

* - This number has been deflated by over 700 county slots due to a long-standing
summing error that was in N1API's 20m Digital Modes county slot totals and which he was
ultimately able to correct this month. The error originally appeared in Logger I release
5109 (7/24/2018) and it persisted through release 5124 (11/24/2018). It was finally
repaired in release 5125 (12/29/2018) but then in that version through release 5142
(5/9/2019) there were other miscellaneous slot summing calculation errors which
appeared during the first half of 2019 and were not all addressed and repaired until
release 5143.
