Hi Don,

Before I continue, I appreciated your call in the WAEDC.  I almost was ready 
to think that my log wouldn't contain AA5AU in this one, but you made it 
happen.  Hi Hi.

I found the same thing when I was asked to repeat NR x x x.  I would click 
on the number in the box and it would send the requested QTC in that group, 
but I had to end the "diddle" with the ESC key.  I couldn't remember if it 
ended by itself or some other way in the past.  Maybe this is something that 
Wayne could look at and make an adjustment in the program.

Again, thanks for the contact.
