Whatever you can do Paul. It's not a big problem - I can always set it by

OK, now I understand. It's not an issue, more a familiarity thing.

I brought it up because there were a couple of ocassions when I wanted to
verify the county code received, wondering if I'd mistaken it for something
very similar, as opposed to checking multiplier status. I think I would find
the opportunity to scroll useful but offhand can't suggest a command to
implement it. Maybe those more familiar with SD who think the feature would
be worthwhile might comment?
New question. The Manchester Mineira All America CW Contest runs May 17/18th
and there is no template. Not that I could find anyway. What's involved in
