Chris Terkla, N1XS reported that the program doesn't work in a DOS box under
Windows XP.  Hmmm, I may have compiled it wrong (it's not something I can
easily test, since it works on my PC either way).  If you get an error like
"Cannot run program in DOS mode", don't worry about it -- I'll fix it tonight.
Sorry about the trouble.

At least two people have asked me what a "pass" was.  I thought this was
standard contest jargon like "multiplier" and "busted call".  Anyway, a pass is
when you work a station and ask him/her to QSY to another band or mode for a
needed QSO or multiplier.
