I have already tried that. But it looks like CT re-numbers the QSOs 
when it loads a log. I re-started CT at least twice, later on in the 

If CT hadn't touched the sequential numbers, I would have been able to 
nut it out, because I took notes of the last QSO before I corrected 
the clock. 

Of course, what I *should* have done was save a backup of the log 
before moving the clock back.
