There seems to be some confusion about my question concerning Log File
See page p.41 of the current NA manual. Typing the text command
COMMENTS opens the EDIT LOG FILE COMMENTS window. This feature allows
you to write a limited number of comment lines which stay with the log
file, and which are included in the comments area of the contest
This is not the same as the NOTEPAD feature (see p. 34), which pops up
and allows you to enter one line of text which is appended to the
filename.NOT file. This file grows as you add notes. Once a note
line has been entered, you cannot edit it within NA, but you can edit
it with a simple text editor (such as EDIT, which comes with DOS).
The two features serve different purposes. The NOTEPAD is intended
for short comments to be reviewed later (ex: correction notes) and
perhaps discarded. LOG FILE COMMENTS are stay with the .QDF, and
might be used as a permanent record related to the file.
It sure seems like nobody even knows about LOG FILE COMMENTS. As I
said before, if this is a useless feature, we can use the space in the
.QDF header for more useful things...
One other clarification with regards to recent discussions - when I
asked for comments on the BAND MAP, I'm referring to the window opened
with Ctrl-F6 showing recent spots and worked QSOs, not the Multiplier
