Dick, this is no solution either. Becaus what's in the log not neccessarily 
shows where you transmitted. I.e. I'm as a European am working split with the US 
on 40 m. Let's assume I work somebody who's calling on 7.240 MHz then this is 
what is logged in N1MM for instance, even if I transmit split below 7.200 which 
is legal overhere. Even with CAT control the TX frequeny is only shown on 
display during transmit. Now when do you usually log a contact (hitting enter or 
whatever)? During TX or rather during RX? ;-))

So your suggestion might work for 20 m simplex but that's only half of the story 
(if not less, hihi).
