1.  Don't forget that you can highlight any sequence in the RTTY window by
double-clicking on the first letter.  WriteLog highlights to the end of the
word and inserts it in the window.

2.  To Phil W2GE

 for RTTY

Don't let all the grousing fool you.  WriteLog is a great product.  Most of the
 grousing is for personal preferences or operator error.  True there are
glitches and bugs, but given the complexity of the program, not many.  

I had the good forture of starting RTTY contesting with Writelog & haven't had
to unlearn shortcuts from other programs to relearn them on Writelog - that is
where most people have complaints.  They want WriteLog to work like XYZ9.3
because they are familiar with it.  I certainly understand that, because I
don't want to have to stop in the middle of hot run to figure out why the
keystroke combo doesn't do what I thought it did.  

Is it better than WF1B?  I think so, but I started with WriteLog.  Bottom line,
 its what works best for you.
