[WriteLog] FMRE Serial Number Pre-Fill

No, I did not have any pre-fill engaged.  What I referred to below was the
pre-fill that WriteLog does based on having worked the station previously in
the same log.

It wouldn't make sense to engage pre-fill for the FMRE because serial
numbers go into the same entry field as XE districts.
