Dan/Jim -- it's an upstream data issue... In the google spreadsheet there are some bad values with newlines in them. e.g. the state for member 2420 was entered as "CO<NEWLINE>" .. (ditto for 2715 and 2571 -- extra newlines in the state value). That messes up the (inhenrently fragile) google->CSV->hamclubs processes. But if you fix the source data, it'll flow through properly next refresh.

Yep! it was all completely automated, but very sensitive (for all the various clubs/datasources, not just 070) to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garbage_in,_garbage_out
and over time as the source data changes, it "breaks" the output. but overall it's been pretty good for being totally unattended! Which is why it's still up -- if some part of it is still working [with 0 dev time] and benefits someone, then great!
Bob - That is an issue with the hamclubs.info
site. It is maintained by someone else and they do not keep it updated any longer. I believe it updates itself somehow, however, those errors are not being fixed. I have to go into the file and delete those as well every time I download the data file. Kind of a pain but better than not having it at all I guess.

Not sure this is an issue or not but thought I would ask. I use the Ham Club membership List for 070 on the hamclubs.info
web site and DX Labs SpotCollector. Until recently it worked great. I use FLDIGI and the bridge to the DX Labs suite. As soon as I click on a call sign, DX View will tell me if someone is a PODXS member. Recently some of the call signs were not recognized even though there were in the membership list. I went though the list and found three locations where a 070-0000 was not attached to a call sign. Here are the locations in the list.
Between member (2420 and 2421), (2715 and 2716) and (2571 and 2572).
I manually went in and deleted the extra 070-0000 and everything seems to work great again. It appears SpotCollector has issues with the extra characters. I'm not asking for a fix but want to know if the extra characters are in the list for another reason. Thanks.
