OM.

how to change the zone VA2VT is in CQ zone 5 not zone 2
The 'cty.dat' used by WSJT-X has an entry for VA2VT stating cq zone 2
"VA2VT": {
"continent": "NA",
"cq": 2,
"entity": "Canada",
"itu": 4,
"lat": 44.35,
"len": 2,
"long": 78.75,
"tz": -5.0
}

You need to download new version of 'cty.dat' which is available here:
https://www.country-files.com/big-cty-02-april-2022/

This version does not have separate entry for VA2VT anymore so it will
be listed as "plain" Canadian in CQ zone 5.
