I fully understand...I'm a former announcer/dj but also do voiceovers, etc.

Thank God...another person with Vision who understands the real-world 
need.  But apparently, like my suggestions months ago, they appear to have 
gone down a "Black Hole".

I now use TR for CW, but the local Club uses WriteLog (Networked) for Field 
Day which, if it doesn't get enhanced, keeps us in the Dark Ages compared 
to what you obviously know *can* be an efficiency improvement.

FYI, K1EA said he would most likely implement these kinds of things 
shortly, but that doesn't solve the Club FD situation ;-(   Or, what could 
be a more dramatic/increased use of WL by SSBers wanting to 
go-to-the-next-level in voice-keying.

Welcome to my world, Jamie!  But IMHO, if others can't understand 
substantial product improvement for the benefit of those who want to excel, 
that is *their* problem.   We should charge Consulting Fees for "Innovative 
Solutions" :-) :-) :-)  If people don't want FREE consulting, that is 
*their* problem.

I could be wrong, but I seem to recall seeing something about certain 
combinations of letters in WL causing a problem with .wav files...like if 
"CQ" is contained within a fullcallsign.wav file, the desired results of 
what we are tying to have happen won't ... something else will take 
place... "by design".  Maybe someone else can shed some light on this.

Tnx, OM!
