while preparing my application for CW Excellence Award by TBDXC (https://www.tbdxc.net/awards) I set up filter to date from 2018-10-01 till today, mode CW, sort by Call and group by dxcc_ref. The resulting score contained also JX7X wich was a pirated call and has DXCC ref. = #.
This means that # in statistics counts as a regular DXCC point. It should be fixed!
