[WriteLog] How to setup Writelog for W1AW

Yup, that's what's happening!  I can enter the same call on the same band 
and as long as the mode is different, no dupe!  Just a bit confusing.  You 
would think that would be an easy bug to fix.  Thanks for letting me get a 
good nights sleep tonight!

Well, that's certainly interesting!  I will try to set it up again tonight
and make a few "dummy" entries into the log and see how it dupes.  If it
accepts the same call on the same band but with a different mode and doesn't
flag it as a dupe then it must be the DXpedition module even though it says
DXCC tracking module.  Thanks for the tip.

I always pick DXpedition mode and down at the bottom is always shows
General DX Tracking.
