V17.50  13 November 2014

All Contests:
    Broken code (in V17.48), related to recording your
    score in a header record, caused the callsign from
    the last QSO in the log to replace your own call
    in header record 2.

    This had several effects.  SDCHECK listed this,
    incorrect, call in every Cabrillo QSO record, and
    ignored any QSOs with the same call.  When a log
    was reloaded, SD removed (deleted) any QSOs with
    this call (invariably the last QSO, but there
    could be others) due to "own call" QSOs being
    treated as unwanted QSOs (see V17.46).

    Fixed, thanks SM5BKK.

FOC Call Reference File:
    This has been renamed from FOC.LST to FOC-SD.LST,
    and was needed to distinguish it from files of
    the same name intended for other contest loggers.

V17.49  12 November 2014

    The Precedence field could not be edited in
    previously logged QSOs. Fixed, thanks WA9AQN.
