I have the same problem here. Worse, after you try entering the HQ 
abbreviation, TR will no longer take ANY exchange greater than one character! For 
example, after attempting to log the HQ, if the next contact is in zone 28 you will 
only get to log 8. Not good. I went back to 6.62 I think. But the bad news is 
that this was (so far!) the least of my problems.....
