     My log for the ARRL January VHF Sweepstakes was rejected because the
Cabrillo file generated by TR had the wrong entry category.  The one that
TR generated was:


     The correct category is:

     I know that the ARRL January VHF Sweepstakes is not the only contest 
where this happens - I know there were problems with the CQ 160 Meter DX 
Contest, etc.
    I would like to see POST made a little smarter in presenting 
the columns of choices for Cabrillo CATEGORY tag value generation.
It would be fantastic if, based upon the contest defined in the 
log configuration file, only the appropriate columns were presented in 
the Cabrillo file generation.  For instance, in the ARRL January VHF 
Sweepstakes, the columns for choosing bands, power, and modes, and other
would just not be available, and the resulting value for the CATEGORY line
would only include the values chosen from the valid columns.

    This could also avoid people choosing Tribander and Wires for all
sorts of HF contests were that's not relevant, etc.
