I don't see any way to get around it without having two logs.  If you have 
a Windows laptop, you could have two separate DOS windows, each with its 
own copy of NA running, one set up for Texas, another for Louisiana.

On a more practical note, stop for a minute and consider how confusing this 
is going to be if W5HNS operates two contests simultaneously from two 
different states.  Just because you can keep it straight does not mean the 
other contestants can.
