You are not supposed to work two stations at once as a multi-single.

This is a rule violation.

There is no reason for WL to allow you to do this.

Before reverting back to TR for Multi-Op contests with Serial Numbers (i.e 
SS, WPX, etc), I just wondered if anyone could point me to a solution to this 
problem  when using Writelog.  I didn't get any response to my original post.
