    The top of the Callook site explicitly says:
    NO-NONSENSE AMATEUR RADIO U.S.A. CALLSIGN LOOKUPS
    Callook does US callsigns only, so it'd be pointless to include a field that says 'Country: USA' with every lookup.

    Oops...I completely misread what you wrote the first time. I apologize for that. No "R" being there certainly makes a big difference.

    That being said, no information about counties is stored in the FCC's database, so to include that information, Callook would have to poll an external service to figure out the county from the town name or ZIP code stored in the database, similar to the way it uses Yahoo!s geocoding API to figure out latitude/longitude.

    Every poll to an external service slows down Callook significantly, so I'm really hesitant to add county display to the site unless many people express interest in this feature.

    While databases including county/latitude/longitude/etc information are commercially availalbe and could be hosted/stored locally on the Callook server (which would significantly speed up lookup times,) these databases cost money to acquire.

    Thumbs up Great idea ....

    Looks great & very simple to use, have added it into my 'favourites' list.
    Just a pity it didn't hold the 'county' info but a great job very well done.
    Best Regards,
