It only took three readings to understand it?  It's difficult even for
one whose native language is English. There are a bunch of things I
don't understand in the rules (for instance, does "African Italy" zone
33 count as a country?)

I recalculated my score by hand and it actually went up in spite of not
counting the in-country contacts.  Probably this was a result of some
countries like VP2M and VP2E not being recognized.

Another strange thing I can't figure out.  One of the P4 stations went
into the log as HM, which is P5, P6, P7, P8, P9.  The others got logged
