I got a log full of Q's marked B at the beginning of SS CW when I discovered that my rig interface configuration had been changed overnight by one of our other club members and it took me a couple of hours to get it working again while I sent by paddle and logged Q's on the wrong band/mode. Once I got it reconfigured I manually edited all of the band/mode information for these Q's as I continued to operate. Editing them caused the mult to be forgotten by WL and the callsign seemed to be dropped from the "dupesheet".
Choosing "Recalculate Score", which is on the Contest menu if I remember right, eliminates all B's that have been corrected and fixes the mults and dupesheet. The first time I did Recalculate Score there were still a couple B's left that I was then able to correct and redo the Recalculate Score.
> I had some serious RF issue that caused me to lose com a few times and a screwy number entered for freq and of course the "red B" showed up.
> I re-initialized the com and manually corrected the freq but the B never did go away.
> The final log translated to cabrillo and the qso was in there.
> I am guessing the B stayed as a marker in case you want to go back later even though the correction had been made just to check that the change was correct only now you're (not in the heat of the battle) so to speak. Sounds logical to me anyway.
