Added delimiters to checks for callsigns and member numbers to preclude partial callsigns and short member numbers from producing errors.
2.1.5
20150624
Fixes WAE award so that it handles the Turkish stations as they pertain to the Zone, TA1 callsigns are in Europe and all calls with numbers other than "1" are Asia.
Along with the new MemberDataList2.csv file, fixes numerous state, and start/end dates for members.

Fixes small problem with the RTTY blockiing function didn't handle some BEACON spots correctly.
2.1.3
20140221
Adds individual bandpass filters for each designated alert callsign. Only spot the bands you need; use band format like: 160 80 40, with a space between each band.
Displays the band slot information for each of the current alert callsigns, saves and retrieves band data between sessions.

2.1.1a
20120226
Fixes problem of not spotting some north american stations when NAQP NA filter was selected.
Changes width of totals block to accomodate a little larger font size.

2.1.1
20111020

Adds an option to the database update screen -- tab "System-Database Updates" to update the MemberDataAddOn.csv file. This file is used to store special call operations (i.e. K8O callsign that was used 27-28 Aug 2011 by member K2KW CWops# 80).
Adds button to database update screen to Backup the current "callsign.data" database file to the "Backups" folder. This option overwrites the previous backup file. Backup files are not disturbed when applying a new update.

Adds option to turn off the display of remote CAM keep-alives.
Makes the Connect button respond faster, now doesn't show a red Connect button if a filter is selected that precludes most of the spots.
Fixes condition where a user had the CAM software fail because of a string to double conversion that gave the wrong answer. The problem does not occur on the developmental computers and nobody else has reported it, but it is fixed by writing a separate string to single precision conversion routine.
Enhanced duplicate spot recognition.
Catch error for clipboard not available so that CAM will not crash.
Expanded Banned webserver list from 5 to unlimited because there are many spot servers that were not setup properly as to the frequency of the spot. Banned servers are entered by callsign and separated by any character except a comma (suggest a dash or a space).

Adds checkbox to block past members from being display when filters for members only are checked. This does not affect award totals for QSOs made with the past member prior to their quit date.
Places date and time on messages shown when the internet site cannot be access, either by the site itself or because you have lost internet access.
Version 1.9.3 has the full implementation of using the quit date to determine eligibility of a QSO for award credit, so ACA and CMA credits could be reduced if you worked a station that did not renew membership and the date of the QSO was after the quit date as published in the member database.
