Has anyone else ran across this besides me and if so do you have a resolution?
The address have the correct abbreviation but the <VE PROV> is wrong. I am using LOGic V9.20.9
Following are a two examples.

<address:50:m>WILLIAM FRY
BOX 135
TWILLINGATE, NL A0G 4M0
CANADA
<ve prov:2>NF <eor>

<address:65:m>Nazaire Simon
605 TAMARACK DRIVE
LABRADOR CITY, NL A2V 2V2
Canada
<ve prov:2>LB

I use JTAlert with WSJTx and it will track various awards but it looks for the <STATE:2> . . . to track VE Provinces. I've been correcting the exported file with a text editor to change <ve prov:2> . . . to <STATE:2> . . . and that is when I discovered the above errors.

Hi David,

Yes, I found several myself going back several years. NL (Newfoundland and Labrador) combined NF (Newfoundland) and LB (labrador) some years ago. After checking LOGic's list of valid values for VE Province, there is no entry for NL (Newfoundland and Labrador), seems like the ARRL Sections were revised back when those provinces were combined but not the VE Province entries. I worked ARRL SS and the VE Province for NL was logged as the ARRL Section BUT the VE Prov entry for the same QSO was LB (or NF as the case may be). One could revise the list of valid values, just need the dates those changes were initiated so as to maintain credit accuracy in the log. I believe the entries for the ARRL Section changes would have the dates and could just be copied. Then mass changing NF and LB from those dates to NL would make the log current. I'm sure Dennis will chime in with "a fix will be in the next update" unless were both missing something.

PS: Good catch, I never would have noticed otherwise !

EDIT: Appears the Prefix Table for VO1 and VO2 also needs tweeking
Dec 06 2001 Province name change from "Newfoundland" to "Newfoundland and Labrador".
LB was "commonly" used for Labrador prior to 2002

FWIW anyways

Thanks Brad for the info. I'd have never caught it if I had not started tracking VE provinces. I know Dennis is working the VE PROV: to STATE: change so hopefully this got flagged soon enough for him to fix it at the same time.
