Forgive the dumb question, but why do you use the <TAB> key instead of
the <SPACEBAR>? I think alot of what you see in the above would not
occur. I used the BM with my OMNI-VI, and didn't really have any of
these problems. If I grabbed a callsign from the BM it put it into the
CALLSIGN field, and then hitting <SPACEBAR> it would put in the power in
the correct field. However this will only happen if you had previously
logged this station.
