It has been awhile since I have tried it, but if you make a blank QDF 
file for each county like
countyname.qdf and make a matching text file countyname.bnr that 
contains the name of the
county, there will be a banner on NA with the name of the county, so you 
will know which log
you have up and running for the county that you are in.
I'm sure it is documented somewhere in the update files.
