I couldn't figure out how DXLog.net was pre-filling the Zone.  It didn't
seem like it was looking it up in cty_wt_mod.dat properly.  Some JA
stations were not even listed in zone 25?

Right, Escape it stops the message, but it doesn't clear the buffer like
you expect it to.

I think that must be part of 2Tone not DXLog.net.

I used MMTTY for transmitting FSK, 2Tone and MMTTY for receive windows.  I
couldn't get MMVARI to work inside DXLog.net, even though it works OK

Yes, try Options -> Interface specific options -> Use decoder freq
correction (uncheck this option and frequency display should be fixed).

This seems to work already (was new in 2.0.12), but you have to
double-click on the call in the check partial window, not single click.

Maybe you are using Options -> Windows -> Floating?  Try using the other
option; all the Function keys seem to work OK when any DXLog.net window has
the focus.

But it would be nice for DXLog.net to automatically grab the focus every 5
or 10 seconds like N1MM does.

First, consider using the LIST tab in the bandmap, to see all spots.

Second, you can press Alt+Scroll wheel up/down while the mouse is over the
window and it will expand or contract.  Funny bug, Ctrl+mouse wheel
up/down, both directions make the window smaller! :-)

Ctrl+Tab swaps Run and S&P modes and messages (status shown in clock
window), but first type RUNSP [Enter] in the logging window to enable
RUN/S&P switching.
