[WriteLog] modes again

I have to agree with Jerry. The auto filling band map was a bit of a pain.
Not that I can see the use for some, I don't use any cluster so calls in the
bandmap are ones that I put there and stations often move before the time
expires on the band map (I guess I need to shorten up that time a bit).

With features such as these, maybe a "place holder" could be put in the ini
file to make it easy to find, or if that would make the ini file too large,
a help screen that details all of the possible commands that could be placed
in the ini file. (If the later already exists, excuse the bandwidth. I'll
admit, I haven't looked for it.).
