Hi Rob,

Writelog records both your receive and transmit frequencies. Usually the log
only displays one of them, I suspect the other one is still showing an out
of band frequency. Click Setup then Display format. Turn on the box that
says Transmit frequency in the QSO Display Format window.
Then you will have to edit those last 36 entries as you did before. That
*should* do it:-)
