Logging QSOs with CQ Countries

CQ Magazine's CQ DX Marathon Award is based on working countries and zones defined by CQ. These countries include all DXCC entities plus 7 additional countries, each of which is wholly contained within a DXCC entity:

To enable logged QSOs to specify a CQ country, check the CQ, WAE, Holyland region select box in the Other awards panel on the Configuration window's Awards tab.

When you log a QSO with one of the above CQ countries with the CQ, WAE, Holyland region select box checked, a Region textbox will appear in the Capture window, and in the Awards panel on the Main window's Log QSOs tab. In the Region textbox, specify the appropriate CQ Prefix from the table above. If you are also pursuing the Worked All Britain (WAB) award, then in the Region textbox of a QSO with Shetland Island, record your QSO partner's WAB square rather than GM/S.
