Field Day, my favorite subject...

it says:

"Class D stations may count contacts only with Class A, B, C and E Field
Day groups for points."

I believe you are confused and thought this rule worked sort of 'the other
way around.'  Class As can count QSOs with any other class; it is only
Class Ds who cannot cound Qs with other Class Ds.

As to making the program properly handle the point values, I say leave it
alone, but only because Tree probably has a lot of more important things to
take care of...please don't be offended, but you gotta add all that stuff
up separately and figure your score on the summary sheet, so what is
technically in LOG.DAT just doesn't matter.  The program DOES tell you how
many QSOs are on what mode.

And I am the most anal-retentive person MOST people know!
