A version or two back - after TR READ was introduced - I was playing around
in some contest not directly supported by TR & changing exchange, QSO point
& multiplier parameters on the fly.  Once I got them so they seemed reasonably
right, I then quit, deleted RESTART.BIN & did a READ.

The result of TR READ was a bit of a mess, but luckily it was a dozen Qs
into a contest I was goofing around in.  Sorry, forgot the details - just 
not to use TR READ until after the contest & then to watch very carefully
what it does.

Have yet to use it since.
