As I didn't receive any answer from Dirk about this suggestion, here is it 


I just tried to ask for DX spots annoncing my club station using the special
call HB2008G, so I did a "SHOW/DX HB200G" and I got this answer:

Well, only 2 out of those 10 spots are what I want, while the 8 others are for
other stations with a longer call starting with the same string.

I already had the same problem in the past while searching for short calls:
most information returned is useless.

Unless I missed a way to do that, would it be possible to implement an
argument to the SHOW/DX command that would instruct the system to look for
exact matches of the call only ?
