Hard to break old habits?

I don't know for sure if ALL the contest sponsors that CT can log all 
support receiving Cabrillo-formatted logs.  There may be some marginal 
value in writing two different log formats, but I do agree that the old 
ARRL format can go, since ARRL now wants only Cabrillo logs.

I have sent another request to Ken to clean up this mess.  Looks like when 
he modified the program to write Cabrillo to .LOG file that he didn't get 
it right for all contests.
