[WriteLog] YODX module bug report

This was the first time I've ever operated in the YO DX contest so my first 
experience with that module.  The first thing I noticed was that the Band 
Map did not indicate any mult stations.  All stations were either Blue (good 
one) or Red (dupe), but no Yellow ( new mult).

Also the Parameter setup window is out of date for the various Categories 
now used in this contest.  According to the rules it sounds like they 
recently changed the Category designations.  Another problem for me was once 
a Category was selected everything grayed out and no changes could be made 
to select a different category.  In my case I selected SO AB HI as my 
category, but due to crappy propagation all my QSOs were on 20M.  I tried to 
change from AB to SB, but since the categories were grayed out I couldn't 
doe it.  I ended up editing the Cabrillo category line post contest to 
SO-AB-CW HP since it appears they no longer have a single band category.

I noted two bugs with the YO DX Contest Module.

WriteLog Version 11.21P, yodx module version, Windows 7.

Scoring:  Per the rules, Romanian stations are worth 8 QSO points.  Romanian
stations with a YO in their prefix are correctly assigned 8 QSO points;
Romanian stations with a YP, YQ or YR prefix are incorrectly assigned 4 QSO

Broadcast score:  I select the "Broadcast score..." option from the
"Contest" pull down.  I fill in the information on the "Log submission
details" window.  When I push OK, I get a popup saying "Must set Bands of
operation."  However, the "Band" pulldown is not active on the "Log
submission details" window.
