I think that once Tree gets to talk to Billy Lunt at the ARRL
we will know what they really want. 

In the past they have accepted logs (for 6 or more years) in 
the format that they have been rejecting lately.  It appears 
that they are doing this based on the rule above. 

Of course for a contest like the SS it becomes very hard
to put all of the sent data on the same line with everything
else and still keep the line of data under 80 cols. 

I am sure Tree will update us when we sort out things
with the ARRL.  If anyone is worried about missing log
deadlines or such - it should not be a problem.
