Hello dear friends:

I was checking some loggers as a DX station working with Argentine stations and find a lot of problems with our provinces.

For example:

LU1DZ/F that the some loggers show in FRANCE is not.
/F means portable or fixed located in Santa Fe province, Argentina.

The first letter after the number means the province, then /P is in San Luis, /Q is San Juan, /Z is Antartica, etc.

LU/DH4PB/R means La Rioja province.

For a better understandig you will find the complete LU division list and explanatios at:

http://gacw.no-ip.org/divilu.html

I think this will be a big source of problems for the score of stations outside Argentina.

Would you please help us checking your software and inform here?.

Many thanks for your support.

Muchos saludos
Best regards

Well the problem is not easily resolved in that the suffixes clash with suffixes used by people who actually might be operating in France under reciprocal licensing.

Other similar problems occur that are not related to Argentina.  For example, maritime mobile stations sign /MM.  Most loggers will then show Scotland since that is also a valid Scottish prefix.

Seems to me that there should be no clash with those operating on reciprical agreement in France.  The only correct version for operating in France is F/URCALL/P and the likes.  There is no longer any URCALL/F although this sounds weird to us old timers.
