Jim, good report, thanks for the tests.
Yes, you are right. He is using the /4 to indicate the call
area. However, that is interpreted by some logging programs as
/AH4, which is Midway. Log4OM v2 (my main logging program)
considers AH6P/4 as Midway. Log4Om v1 lists it as Hawaii. N1MM+
shows Midway. DXKeeper, as Laurie already mentioned, doesn't
list a country, and asks for a country code to be entered. ACLog
lists it as Hawaii. Swisslog shows Midway. If I enter AH6P/W4,
all logs correctly show United States. That would probably be
the better call for him to use.
It could be worse, the Station in question could be running
portable in Zone 5 and signing "/P5".
