HELP             HELP

I don't know much about putters or such stuff but I do know that once a Com 
Port is in use in one program it isn't going to allow use by another program 
to do the same thing or something else.

If I try to use N1MM  when I enter a contact if the Mult (county 
abreviation) isn't correct I can't get that contact to enter.  Under  NA 
they will enter under some circumstances I believe.

It really appears that this weekend will be a big logging problem because 
the Indiana QP ,  NEQP, and 7QP willl require different entries if one is to 
log what is sent,  then we have the problem of the guy not knowing the 
correct abreviation for his county for NA , CT or MM.   I'm gonna have to 
have 2  or 3 sheets of paper along side so I can try to find an entry that 
MM or whatever program in use will accept.

MY hands are about to go to the surrender position ???

SOMEONE make up our Mind about what is going to be the standard and GO  with
