hmm....that's EXACTLY what I do with Notes for this QSO. New
antenna.....make a note there...when I make my first contact with that
new antenna. New mic....make a note on the QSO(s) with the new mic. Country
deleted.....make a note there (on that country that I just worked
that got deleted...), etc, etc. So I guess I'm still missing the point, as
you say. No problem though, it works just fine for me.....so I don't have
any issues. Hope others figure out something that works for them. It works
perfectly to make "non-QSO" related notes as is....for me. I guess I'll
consider myself lucky!
