Thanks Jim,

Not a one click solution but it gets the job done.

Might add. The txt file you create in step 2 is just that a txt file so you can 
read it and see the calls.  Of course you could just do step 1 and 2 then bring 
the txt file into a spread sheet or you favourite txt editor to read and count 
the calls and not interfere with the master file in DX4WIN, but doing all 4 
steps gets the answer of how many unique calls are in your log or selection 
from within DX4WIN itself.

John, I think you win the prize for this one.  I would not have thought of 
that, but a clever solution!
