[WriteLog] Keyboard QSY to 17M?

I'm using the General DX Tracking "non-contest" module. It works fine for
WARC bands 30M and 12M. It only refuses to go to 17M. It interprets "18075"
as 1.807.5, a frequency in the 160M band. I've also tried 180750 and it
goes to 160 as well. However, thanks for acting as a sounding board - I
figured it out! "1807500" works.
So it turns out that in order to unambiguously specify a 17M frequency, I
need to give it 7 significant figures instead of 5 or 6. That's not my idea
of an optimum solution to the ambiguity between 1807.5 and 18075.0 but it's
close enough. Case closed.
Thanks, gang. 73,
