Can I use the same checker and place a different GC# for an identical challenge in another country?

There are more than one challenge based on six different types of caches in six different states, provinces, or countries.  Will I be able to use this same checker for other cache challenges just by replacing the "GC581QN" with the different GC codes?

It's easy to create a checker that can be used for more than one challenge. Have a look at my checker "X types in Y countries" that is used for http://project-gc.com/Challenges/GC59KP2/12102 and a number of other challenges. It should be very close to what you want, and you should be able to use that for any country-related challenges of that type.

yes, you can use it for another challenges, you need only tag it with the same or different config.

The current config for hte gc581qn is 

  • {
        "types": 6,
        "states": 6,
        "cachetypes": [
            "Traditional Cache",
            "Unknown Cache",
            "Multi-cache",
            "Event Cache",
            "Earthcache",
            "Letterbox Hybrid",
            "Cache In Trash Out Event",
            "Wherigo Cache",
            "Webcam Cache",
            "Lost and Found Event Cache",
            "Mega-Event Cache",
            "GPS Adventures Exhibit",
            "Project APE Cache",
            "Groundspeak Block Party",
            "Giga-Event Cache",
            "Groundspeak HQ",
            "Groundspeak Lost and Found Celebration"
        ],
        "country": [
            "Germany"
        ]
    }

so, if your cache is identical, you can use it as-is. If not, you can modify it for your configuration.
