I don't see this problem at all with the sample test I just ran.  I sent 6 
QTCs (ALT+S) to DL4AC and they logged correctly.  I entered a few more dummy 
calls then entered DL4AC again, which showed up as a dupe as it should.  The 
Tx-QTC field showed 4 more QTCs available, but I selected ALT+R to receive 
his QTCs.  I manually entered 4 dummy QTCs received and then clicked on OK. 
WriteLog wrote those additional 4 QTCs to the second instance of the DL4AC 

Did you use the Receive QTC window (ALT+R) when you received QTCs?  When you 
received your QTCs did you give them a packet number and count?  It all 
works ok here.
