I have seen several messages about trying to use the 
General QSO mode to setup unsupported contests. 

It is usually better to start with a contest and modifiy that
as the General QSO mode does not usually modifiy well
into a contest log. 

I would suggest that you look at the file FCONTEST.PAS 
for clues as to what contest would be a good starting point. 
Try to find one with the same excahnge or mult format and
then go from there. 

One person was trying to log a contest that has 4 bits 
of information and I don't think there is anything other
than the sweepstakes that has that much information - of 
course if you used the SS exchange you would need to enter
an extra thing - but it would get it in the log. 

As for setting it up for the PA QSO party - I am pretty 
sure this can/has been done before. I will look and see
if I have any messages about doing that.
