Just so Ken doesn't get the idea NF6H is alone in desiring the "delete 
last Q" and reporting incorrect duping of stations whose mult field is 
then corrected, add me to the list. However, on the duping problem, I 
seem to recall that it occurs with several contests and not with others. 
For example, I believe that in FD, I logged a mobile in something like 
SFL and later worked him again in GA; but the GA QSO showed as a dupe. On 
the other hand, the VHF QSO Party seemed to handle rovers OK once the new 
grid was entered (and by the way, September was the VERY FIRST time I've 
EVER heard, much less worked, a rover from a second grid!).

Still can't make up my mind whether to order a DVP board at that 
ridiculously low price or not...gess I'll upgrade to CT 9 and just not 
use it until the bugs seem to get worked out! Steve, KO0U/4
