auto search using QRZ instead of HamQTH

I have "Enable auto search on HamQTH/QRZ.com" checked and it work beautifully.  It appears to use HamQTH exclusively but perhaps it uses QRZ when HamQTH fails.  I was wondering if there was a way to force QRZ or at least make it go there 1st.
I am currently developing some grocoding software and am using QRZ as my primary data source. It offers better services and appears to be more accurate.  One of the things I am doing is comparing the grid received from QRZ and its' source (user, geocode, grid, etc.) and the grid recorded in the log from the QSO.  I am using the log grid if there is a difference but many entries differ slightly when I feel they should be the same.  I feel as thought the QRZ data may be more accurate at least in cases where data is user supplied.

Hi,
 
you can choose the callbook in Preferences -> Callbook support. HamQTH is default choice but you can change it to qrz.

If you want speed then use

If you want speed then use hamqth, If you are not in a hurry, use qrz.
QRZ is not even close to acurate.
If you are on the reieving side of a pile up you might find yourself waiting for qrz to do the lookup. JMO.
