The prefix table entry for the Azores is:


The CQ(1)8 would mean logging CQ18m would return as the Azores while logging CQ8M would return as Portugal. I don't know if CQ1 is a valid prefix for the Azores but assuming it is then this should be CQ(18) which would return the Azores for CQ1M or CQ8M. I doubt CQ18 is an intentional valid prefix but I could be wrong. Of course I could have this all wrong in which case please educate me.

Thanks for any help.

PS: Is there a some "master" that defines each countries alphanumeric syntax rules (I don't mean the DXCC list) ??
