  Don't have 6.59 - apparently I'm not on the update list for whatever
reason. George or Tree: can either of you help there?
  Anyway, to answer the two questions above: I used TR for the June VHF
contest, and used Notepad (my logs aren't big enough to warrant using
anything else) to change FN20 to SNJ (southern New Jersey). Part of the
problem here is Post doesn't seem to ask for grid and ARRL section
separately (at least not 6.58). I should think you can do the same thing
for changing the title from June to September. Basically you need an
ASCII text editor - don't know if WordPerfect or MS Word will work -
maybe someone else can chime in here.
  BTW, TR works great! Especially being able to go back and edit a QSO
is nice. A couple of times I changed bands (and radios) and didn't
change bands on-screen. I just went in and corrected things, and voila!
Is good! My rigs aren't interfaced to the computer (two different
manufacturers and not enough i/o to handle things).
