Over the course of the last year I have had a lot of fun and success with SD, as in the UKEI DX CW this last weekend. However, I must have hit the Minus key in error on a couple of occasions, which is devastating,  loosing the callsign, exchange info, QSO points down the line including embarrassing UBN's  with 'Not in Log' for the stations affected.

My idea if possible is for the _first push of Minus deletes the QSO_, but a _second push of Minus re-instates the QSO_, then maybe a third push deletes etc.  Just the chance to bring the QSO back could save a lot of heart ache.

The problem is if you are running a frequency and you are focused on getting the calls and subsequent serial numbers right, I have realised when I have pressed Minus in error, you do not retain the info, the very call you typed in seconds ago is not in my memory, I can recall the prefix or country, but I can't remember detail.  If it was a call I recognised its not as big a  problem, but more often than not, it isn't. I think this would be a good solution.
