Hi Paul,

I just finished the FOC Marathon, and here are some things I noticed. They may be a result of 'pilot error' on my part.

1) I noticed that whenever I tried to go back and correct a call sign that was entered incorrectly, the 'points' field changed to zero. I couldn't edit the points, and they stayed zero even after I reloaded the file. The contacts weren't dupes, just corrected.

2) I had a LST file which included lines like

1691 VIC K2VCO

That way I can type in the number and it will tell me whose it is. However, I was warned not to hit Enter or the program would try to QSY. I did this accidentally and noticed that with some numbers, hitting enter caused the program to suddenly terminate. This happened when I hit the Space Bar as well. It would be nice if there were a key that you could hit that would replace the number with the call. I was happy to see that if the program terminates, you don't lose anything!

3) The multiplier window on the left that shows the prefixes by continent was not useful for this contest (indeed it seemed not to work properly, highlighting only the first one or two prefixes that I'd worked in each continent). However, I wish I could have got rid of it and been able to see the per-band totals all the time.

Thank you for an excellent program.
