Thanks to Darek, LB1DH / SQ9X, for putting in a lot of work on this update. We have more than doubled the number of LA/HL summits, with a handful of retirements. LA/HL-203 to LA/HL-432 are new.
The retirements are LA/AA-112, LA/HL-026, LA/HL-103 and LA/HM-071.
Please note that LA/HL-103, Meien, has changed reference to LA/RL-312, just in case anybody is sitting on an old activation log they didn’t upload yet!
We’re still working on further updates to LA.
A recent survey expedition in HI has determined more accurate elevations for three of the highest summits – HI/CI-001, HI/CI-002 and HI/NO-001. We’ll probably get more accurate positions, too, once their paper is published.
There were only a few other little tweaks, such as a name fix for DM/RP-262.
Have fun everyone.
