[Trlog] Latch mode

The way I recall the wonderful way TR(DOS) worked, if I called an inactive radio CQ on R2 while receiving the exchange on R1, if a station answered on R2, it was possible to get Enter to send the TU on R1 and then after entering the new call sign from R2, the program started sending my exchange on R2 to the new caller after the third character if his call. Thus on a single keyboard, (1) enter to send TU after the R1 QSO…(2) type in the new call, and TR starts my exchange after the third character (if that is setup). That was really sweet.
