    I like this site. It's easy to use. I saw the same info in .pdf as well, but can't remember where I saw it.

    As a DXer seemingly stuck at 112 countries, I just got N1MM+ logger up and running and noticed when I click on a spot, the country/zone shows up in the lower left corner. A very pleasant surprise. It's also color coded to tell me if it's already in the log. It has asked me twice if I want to update a prefix file so I'm assuming someone in the programming department of N1MM+ is keeping up on the latest changes.

    I'm using RumLogNG on my Mac, it did a great job telling me any callsign's country. I just don't want to type in every callsign I heard into RumLog to find out the country:)

    James, DON'T WORRY ABOUT TYPING IN EVERY CALL SIGN............
    KEEP THOSE FINGERS LIMBERED UP......HIHIHHI.......

    THE IMPORTANT THING IS TO MAKE SURE YOU KEEP UP YOUR
    VERSION OF RumLogNG SO THAT YOU ALWAYS HAVE THE LATEST
    DX LISTING.

    HAVE A FUN FILLED LABOR HOLIDAY WEEKEND.

    Remembering them.. some of it just comes with time in the seat working DX. The garden variety Prefixes you get to know cold first.. then the not heard as often stuff you do pretty well with. For everything else.. there are the DXCC lists / QRZ / clusters / etc. Before the interwebs I used to keep a DXCC list next to the desk so I could look it up and see what I'm hearing. It's hard to memorize them all.. but eventually you learn a heck of a whole lot. 340 different entities are a lot to remember!
