Since the contest is just a little over a week away, you should probably keep 
things pretty basic. I would consider using a contest logging program, however. 
The one I used is N1MM. The website is http://pages.cthome.net/n1mm/ It is a  
very robust program, but it is free! 
I also use MMTTY for rag chewing in FSK mode with an Icom 756 Pro. The N1MM 
program uses the MMTTY "engine" so it should be a pretty seamless transition. 
There is a pretty steep learning curve on this program so you will need to 
devote a couple of hours at least to getting it set up. In addition to keep 
track of your contacts, it will keep track of your duplicates so you don't 
waste time trying to work a station already in your log. It will also calculate 
your score and one of the most important factors, it will generate a Cabrillo 
file that you will need to submit your log to the ARRL. 
No matter what you use, the macros are pretty simple since the exchange is just 
a signal report and your state. That is why this contest is so popular and easy 
to participate in. 
If you haven't already, read the rules at 
http://www.arrl.org/contests/rules/2007/rtty.html .
Good luck and I hope to put you in my log!
