Hi Pete, et al,
What I do here is keep a few different TRMaster, renaming them
to indicate their use, such as FOC, DX only, US only, etc.
When ever I do use or do updates, I copy the one I am using
into the D:\LOG directory. When I am done and satisfied with
the results, I copy it/all back into the Master directory,
my safe spot.
Best regards de V31Joe"Palooka"
