I'm glad finally some one mentioned MixW. Created over 10 years ago by UT2UZ 
this program had enormous impact on the growth of the RTTY Contesting, 
especially in Europe. Yes, it's not free, but it is not only a Contest 
logger after all, and not only for RTTY...
I was at the Contest dinner in Dayton and was listenening to AA5AU's speech 
after his induction to the Hall Of Fame and unfortunately he never mentioned 
this program either, like it does not exist... :-(
