I participated in the Minnesota QSO Party this past Saturday and had a great time as
usual. My question has to do with logging mobile stations. This year the MnQP
sponsors made a rule that mobiles must identify their county in the callsign (great
rule!) with a two-letter abbreviation (ie. N0XB/BK). This causes a problem in logging
these stations as TR Log considers any /xx to be a DX station. Therefore, when I
tried to enter the county (Becker) in the exchange field, it ignored it. I would then
have to go to the edit window and add the county in the report received field and in
the multiplier field (if it was a new one). This was quite a pain, especially when
working guys on a county line.

In other QSO parties, I have had no problem logging mobiles using a three letter
abbreviation. Short of having the sponsors change the rules to three letter
abbreviations, is there any way to change the configuration to not consider /xx as
