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.
