I also would really like to see all required files somewhat
"automatically" written as in CT or NA.  I must admit, I went crazy
trying to write the proper files after my first contest using the
program (then again I didn't have far to go).

Just a suggestion from a newbie at RTTY.  From talking to you in the
past Ron, I know you will take it constructively and not as a knock on
the program.  In fact, I talk this program up every chance I get.

Take care.
