I think he understands that, and wants to be able to log 
different sent R and T numbers...which TR doesn't do, as 
you say.  Or could you go into the editable log window and 
change the sent RST?  I can't remember and don't have my TR 
computer available right now.  You can always send whatever 
you want to.

You could use TR and the ALT-N function to make a note of 
the actual sent RST.

Or, I use a program called "Logger" that I'm trying to 
compile all of my logs into.  I don't use the keyer in it, 
but I believe it does have one.  It's probably as good as 
any of the logging programs I've demo'd, and is free...if 
you can get by the "unusual" license agreement.

Look for it here:
