[TRLog] QSO Party county line contacts

Perhaps a special keystroke to duplicate the previous QSO without changing
the serial number?  Such that one enters the QSO with the first mult as
usual.  Then the special keystroke duplicates all previous information
except for the multiplier.  Once the second mult is entered, ENTER puts
the QSO in the log without sending any acknowledgement.

I obviously have no idea about how the internals of either LOG or POST
would deal with such buggery of the serial number or auto-send features...

This might be a problem in multi-op situations where other QSOs on the
network appear in the buffer at inopportune times.  One would have to have
the last QSO stored in a separate buffer.

My programmer tendencies are showing...
