 Ok, I can deal with this method, except for one thing: In TRlog, or any of
 them I think, how do I "mark" a qso as incomplete during the contest in
 a way that the POST program, or whatever, will figure this out and generate
 the correct Cabrillo format? What TRLog function key do I hit? What text do
 I type in what column? What note text do I add after the incomplete qso to
 make this happen automatically?  I don't think this is in the programs
 anywhere. Or is this in the works? Tree?
