I actually don't know if differences are allowed from station to station in 
the WL network.  However, it is my advice that you come up with one standard 
configuration and not allow variances from one station to another.  If 
necessary, have a training session to acquaint the ops with the standard 

We faced this situation when preparing for the 3B7RF dxpedition in 1998.  We 
had 14 ops, all with different levels of experience from 
no-computer-logging-at-all to CT/TR/WL experts.  We established a standard 
config (using CT), 
trained & coached the ops where necessary, and had a successful operation.  One 
person was responsible for all computer (laptops) setups, and no one else
