[WriteLog] Is there a way...

You don't have anything set wrong Dick.  That's the way WL works if the call 
is not highlighted.

I can't conceive of any way to "grab" that call without clicking on it in 
the proper location - the first letter of the call.  If you just clicked 
anywhere in the call, WL would have to be able to figure out how to parse 
the partial string from the letter you clicked on to the end of the call and 
then find X number of characters to the left of the click point to try and 
"reassemble" the complete call into something that was a legitimate call 
sign .  Seems like a prodigious programming task to say the least!
