[ct-user] Correcting log errors

Our club used CT set up on laptops lent by a member. Unfortunately some of our operators made mistakes. In one interval someone "corrected" the time from UTC to EDT. This I was able to fix in POSTCONTEST mode.

On several occasions someone forgot to indicate a band change, which probably means we have more dupes than we had expected. I tried using the b2r utility program, editing the .res file, and converting back to binary, but this mangled some entries. Can someone tell me the meaning of each field in the .res text field? I think that was our problem. For instance there seem to be three fields that indicate the band, one for the meters designation and two for the frequency. But for 15 meters I see "17" in what should be the band column. And when I reconstitute the text file I have lost the FD class (2A, etc).

I may have a problem with a mix of versions of the CT program, which is CT 10.03.002, and the conversion files in the same directory, which are b2r9 and r2b9. Thinking this might be a problem I tried to do the conversions on another workstation which had CTWin (10.something) installed. How can I identify the correct versions of utility programs? File sizes and dates might help.
Thanks in advance,
