Hey Tree:

Your memory is amazing.  Even I didn't remember that line......

Anyway, I only have the files that came with the program.  Since I haven't
operated a contest since about 1980, I don't have anything suitable.  If you
can send me something that will work, that would be great.

Things have changed more than a little..........

Well, this smells poor.

The problem is that the program is looking for an entry in your
TRMASTER.DTA database file that has a name and QTH in it so it
can "work" you with a real callsign.

Do you have a log from a previous sprint?  If not, I can probably
send you one.

You can use the POST U E F command to read the data into the database
and then the simulator will work.
