WriteLog *should* get better about this.  You can export your log to
ADIF then edit the MODE field to match one of the modes found here:

Thanks, Jim and Tom.  That certainly works if a large batch of QSOs are all
made with the same mode.  I recently did an operation where the mode was
constantly changing, thus fixing the ADIF later is not workable.  MixW
captures the mode accurately; it would be great if WL did the same in some
future release.
