Subject: [WriteLog] ADIF export includes bonus (unclaimed?) QSOs

I just exported the ADIF file for the W1AW/6 effort in the California QSO 
Party from W6YX and noticed that there were 3 QSOs in the ADIF file with 
times about 10 minutes before the contest started.

I just checked the Cabrillo file that I created before leaving the W6YX 
shack and it does not have these 3 extra QSOs.  I don't have the WL file and 
a copy of WriteLog available at home so I can't investigate further without 
returning to W6YX.

I suspect that one of our operators accidentally logged these 3 stations 
while warming up a frequency with the W6YX callsign and that they were 
probably marked as unclaimed.

Is there a way of preventing unclaimed QSOs from being exported into the 
ADIF file?  These are often mistakes that can't be deleted during the 
contest when operating with networked computers.
