I'm at work and don't have the logcfg.dat with me, but the only thing
different I've done is the contest name is "GENERAL QSO". I only have a
couple of lines in the logcfg.dat, call sign and contest name. The
logcfg.dat is in a subdirectory named "general". Everything else that I
need, such as port for the rig, and the time zone offset, and my grid
square, etc etc is in the stdcfg.dat in my TR directory. and of course
I can make Control-J changes "on the fly". It seems to accept pretty
much anything I've tried to type in the exchange field, I usually put a
signal report, name, and QTH. But I don't have an EXCHANGE statement
programmed in my logcfg.dat.
The biggest thing to remember is to delete the bandmap.bin file before
starting up, so I don't start off with yesterday's bandmap. I usually
do a SH/DX command right away, to load the band map with 15 or 20 recent
spots, that is where I am running into the problems with older spots
overwriting recent ones. since the spots come in reverse chronological
order, most recent first, oldest last, and TR uses the last one it gets
to overwrite previous ones.
I think it works fine for general logging.
BTW, the problem with working split and the bandmap seems to be solved
by making sure I am on VFO A for both T and R before selecting a new
spot from the band map. I made sure I did that last night and had no

I'm interested in running TR in QSO mode for general logging. I have
fumbled around a bit with it. Do you find it ok for this 'non-contest'
Could you send me your logcfg.dat file so I can see how you configured
