Apologies for the last-minute announcement (contest starts 25 minutes from

I've written a new LUA script to make it easier to enter the complex
exchange of the ARRL Sweeptakes contest in "free form," similar to TRlog
and N1MM Logger, so that you don't have to hit the spacebar so much.
 Assign it to the [Tab] key and it will bring-up a pop-up data entry window
where you can enter the exchange data all on one line like this in almost
any order:

123 b n6tv 72 scv
123b 72scv
b 123 scv 72 n6t? q

Download ExchangeBoxSS.zip from http://bit.ly/wtscripts and let me know how
it works for you this weekend.  See the Readme file for installation

Quick start:

   1. Do File | Explore | /scripts directory and drag ExchangeBoxSS.wts
   into the directory
   2. SCRIPTS [Enter]
   3. Click on ExchangeBoxSS
   4. Click [Properties...]
   5. Click [Define...]
   6. Press [TAB]
   7. Click [OK]
   8. Click [OK] again

Type a callsign in the logging window and press [TAB], then type the rest
of the exchange data in the pop-up window and press [Enter].

Please let me know how it works for you.

Bob, N6TV
