I'm testing TRLog 6.73 for use in the Ohio QSO Party. I have two comments and a question.
(1) RST is not part of the Ohio QP exchange. I believe that adding
EXCHANGE RECEIVED = QSO NUMBER DOMESTIC OR DX QTH
to the configuration file after the CONTEST = OHIO QSO PARTY line fixes this.
(2) In log.dat, logging of county names longer than five letters causes problems. The point data is preceded by a repetition of the sixth letter of the county name and a space, lengthening the line. I believe that this can be fixed by creating a custom DOM file with all the county names shortened, thus: Ashl = ASHL replaces the line Ashland = ASHL. This truncation also allows more multipliers to be shown on screen.
(3) Even with shortened multiplier names and BIG REMAINING LIST = TRUE, not all the mults show on screen at once. I recognize that setting REMAINING MULT DISPLAY MODE = ERASE will improve this situation as the contest progresses, but I want to ask if there is a way to scroll back through the remaining multiplier list when not all of it shows on screen. ALT-G does not seem to do anything.
