[NA-User] Cabrillo Question
Tue, 1 Jan 2002 10:00:03 -0500
This question applies (at least) to Sweepstakes, ARRL 160 Meter
and ARRL 10 Meter Contests.
I noticed when upgrading a while ago (10.52? 10.51? 10.50? dunno)
that I'm now prompted for my section when writing out the files
at the end of the contest, even though my section has been specified
in the "location" field when setting up the contest initially.
What's up with that, eh?
Happy New Year, all!
