Just had another gentleman ask me why I didn't use ver 10.02.008.  Told him I 
had not been able to get it to work for me when I tried it when it first came 
out.  Even though I am using a modern PC it would hang up on me.  His question 
prompted me to try to troubleshoot 10.02.008 some more and tell him what 
problems I was having.  I started off with a fresh download of 10.02.008 and 
found it was working for me now and it did not have the IARU Test DUPE problem 
as in 9.92.001.  So I guess problem solved for me as I will now be using 
10.02.008 in future contests but the problem is still there for people using ver 9.
