directory in which you stored the BookFinder program.
This file is normally updated each weekend.
BookFinder will search for any UK call, regardless of the
region entered in the callsign box. If you enter GW4WAB, it will search for all UK variations:
For a G
call, it will search for all theses prefixes:
G, GC, GD, GE, GH, GI, GJ, GM, GN, GP, GS, GT, GU, GW, GX.
Similarly for an M call or a 2 call, all variations will be
searched, regardless of which variation is entered.
The variation with the books is displayed in the callsign
This process does not take place if a GB call is entered,
i.e. if GB4WAB is entered, only books for this exact callsign are found. This
is also the case for non-UK calls.
If the bookholder is a Silent Key, the status bar indicates this.
Where an amateur has more than one call, e.g. a G8 and an M3
call, you can search for either and get the same result.
