state,county in county field

I was looking around in cqrlog and I noticed that when I input a call state,county will show in the county field ... for me FL,St. Johns. Shouldn't that just be the county, for me ... St. Johns?

It seems to be that in fNewQSO.pas source at line 6604 the county contents are made as "state"+","+"county"
Could there be equally named countys in different states? Perhaps that's why state and comma is added in front of county name.

For me, who has not payed QRZ user account, your call shows county only as "FL,"

I have now enabled view county field. It looks like every US entry shows the same way in the county field... state,county.
If this doesn't effect adif uploads from cqrlog to anything else, then I won't worry about it.

Unfortunately county is logged with state (I do not know why it is originally done so?)

MariaDB [cqrlog003]> select state, county from cqrlog_main where county like '%,%' limit 5;

+-------+----------------+
| state | county |
+-------+----------------+
| CT | CT,HARTFORD |
| WI | WI,MANITOWOC |
| MN | MN,SAINT LOUIS |
| IL | IL,COOK |
| PA | PA,LANCASTER |
+-------+----------------+
5 rows in set (0.001 sec)

And so it will export as is, checked.
I do a pull request to remove this as I do not see any mind in this.

Thanks for reporting. Nobody has noticed that before.

There are many cases of the same county name in different states.
Check the ADIF specs for state and county, I believe it is State, county. In my case -- IL,Henry

well to enlighten everyone in the United States, a county is an administrative or political subdivision of a state that consists of a geographic region with specific boundaries and usually some level of governmental authority. I am from Lubbock.
