Hello Jim, and everyone.

I used paper logs but would like to enter my contacts into a logging 
program to generate a cabrillo file to send in. I've tried a logging 
program, or two, in the past, to enter my contacts into after the fact, 
but they wouldn't let me enter a date or time, they automatically used 
the current date/time on the computer. That can be edited, I know, but 
it would be much easier if I could enter my own date/time as I'm putting 
the contacts in.  Do you, or anyone, know of a free logging program that 
will allow the date/time of my choosing to be entered?
I would like to make it easier for the volunteers who work hard on this 

Thanks to all for a fun QSO party!
