Quick Tips:

- TAB IS THE KEY to moving smoothly through the Comms Log form.
   Start with identifying the Net Control Station ID (to start or load the log and continue)... then TAB your way through the form for best results.
   Try not to use your mouse, and perhaps speedy data entry will happen. :)

- With the dropdown menus, and the "lookup" fields, type the first character of the menu item you want (like "m" for "MCI Poll", which might pop up a supporting form)

- With the "lookup menus" where you type stuff in to find your target ... start typing ... and, as you get more specific, the results will be more specific. For example, type a "t" in there, to find all of the entries with a "t" in them. If you type "hunt" in there, it will only show you the entries with "hunt" in them ... and, I think you get the idea.

Please do let me know what's awkward and what works and what's crap and so on. Literally, every comment is Pure Gold! :) Thanks. 73
