In 9.69, WRITELOG for CQWW creates <callsign>.LOG in the Cabrillo format.
In 9.69, WRITELOG for ARRL SS creates <callsign>.LOG in the old ARRL format.

I have informed K1EA about this problem.  Other contests may be broken as well.

I suggest going back to 9.68 then WRITELOG will create <callsign>.TXT in 
Cabrillo format.  This should work for most all contests.
