[TRLog] TR sticks with initial exchange
Wed, 5 Jan 2000 20:21:34 EST
Using TR ver 6.44.
I set up TR for the SOWP International QSO Roundup.
Used NA QSO for the CONTEST line in LOGCFG. Worked
OK, except that when reworking a station on a new band,
TR would treast it as an initial exchange. That is, if a sta-
tion had given me a new nickname, or a new qth (state)
in the earlier QSO, TR would put the previous name or
state from the TRMASTER into the exchange line of the
This may be a clue as to what I did wrong: The pro-
gram logs the state in lower case. Not Fl, Ny, or Az. It
logs fl, ny and az. Also it leaves a blank for foreign pre-
fixes. That is, after a DL or EA QSO, there is a blank in
the QTH column. This is no problem, but may indicate
what is flaky about my program.
Here's the LOGCFG.DAT. The actual exchange is
SOWP membership number, but the closest valid
exchange uses QSO number. TR won't know the
difference, will it?
