As a new user of TR Log and I'm trying to raise my comfort level before tackling
the September VHF contest. I hope the group can help me with two issues.I will be
running the program on laptops which compounds issue number two.
First, I really like the way you can enter a call and the full grid square,
(FN03XX) to get a precise beam heading. On the microwave bands that can be the
difference in making a contact or not. The difficulty is that you cannot log a contact
with the extra 2 letters. You must backspace to remove the offending letters, and then
press enter. Am I doing this right?
Second, if I enable the grid square map via logcfg.dat and allow VESA, the whole
screen goes to VESA. Not good for my aging eyesight!!
But if I enable the grid map with control-J, or turn the VESA off in logcfg.dat
the grid map comes up in the middle of the screen hiding the editable callsigns, the
grid totals for each band, and partially the QSO's needed/ multi needed windows. BUT,
the text on the screen is "normal" sized and much easier to see. Is there any way to
move the grid map to the bottom of the screen? Or any other suggestion?
Thanks in advance!
