      I don't think I understand the band change comment, Kenny.

      If I were doing this (yeah, right, I'm gonna log by hand), I would
      do the following:

      7000
      w1abc 12 ct
      w2xzz 55 ma
      14000
      w5www 42 tx

      etc.

      I.e. change the band as I go, by entering the frequency.

      73,
      Tom

      easily set the date and time via interpolation. (remember, exact QSO times
      are not critical for contest sponsors, just within reason) This feature is
      most useful if you have a bunch of QSOs to enter. If one or two QSOs, might
      as well do the old way...

      You cannot (automatically) reverse the time interpolation process below. You
      have been warned!

      > a.. Put your radio on the band/mode for the QSOs you want to enter
      post-contest(or set band manually if radio not hooked up)
      > b.. Enter hand-logged QSOs and exchanges (pretty much as fast as you can
      type)
      > c.. Don't worry about times for the above QSOs (they will have the
      current time/date)
      > To change time/date of a series of hand-entered QSOs after a contest:
      >
      > a.. Put mouse over the first (earliest in time) QSO you want to change
      the time/date and single click to highlight the row

      > c.. Select "Set Start Interpolation Time_Row"
      > d.. Enter desired start time/date, and hit OK
      > a.. Put mouse over the last (latest in time) QSO you want to change the
      time/date and single click to highlight the row
      > b.. With mouse over log window, right click
      > c.. Select "Set Stop Interpolation Time_Row"
      > d.. Enter desired stop time/date, and hit OK
      > e.. Utility will interpolate the times for all QSOs between the
      start/stop times
      > Notes: The utility will average out the time for each QSO in the group of
      QSOs you have selected. Remember there is no "undo" feature, so make a copy
      of your log before using this utility. If you have a large gap in time in
      your hand log, enter the first batch of QSOs, and do the interpolation. Then
      enter the second group of QSOs and do another interpolation. If you have a
      lot of band changes, you might try entering all the QSOs, do the
      interpolation, and then go back and change the frequency for specific QSOs.
