Okay, lets back up first.  The interface frequencies are used for the
The asking for frequencies flag also relates to the bandmap.
If you don't have BANDMAP ENABLE = TRUE, the frequencies don't do
anything, and it won't ask you for it.
Now, if you have the bandmap on, my experience (using an old TS-530 so
no interface) is that TR will only ask for the frequencies for the
bandmap if you hit the space bar to dupe check.

Right, the log doesn't need the frequency...there's a flag to put the
freq in the log, but the main reason for the freq is for the bandmap.
Again, to echo others, I always make up 20-25 Q's and run them
through, esp. in CW tests, to make sure that everything is setup
right.  Just make sure you delete log.dat, log.tmp, bandmap.bin,
restart.bin, and any other files created by TR except logcfg.dat.

Good luck, see you this weekend.
