I used NA 10.58 for the CQ 160 CW and it worked perfectly, except for with
one crash sequence.  I did have one weird experience, and that was any time
I typed in a call with the sequence XV as the prefix, where "X" was any
letter, and "V" was the second letter (eg, W4ZV, and I typed in "ZV" to
check the auto-partial to see if we had worked before).  In those cases,
the program crashed.
