That's good ... the reason I ask is that at some point, I'd like to
consolidate all my electronic logs and troll them for contacts that I
can use for DXCC, etc.  I might even consider LOTW at some point, but
I plan to complete at least basic DXCC with paper QSLs.

The N1MM/MMTTY combo is pretty slick.  Basically, N1MM uses MMTTY as a
RTTY "engine" and handles all the logging (and dupe checking, scoring,
etc).  MMTTY also has a fine interface of it's own - I made 350 QSOs
in MMTTY alone during last year's WPX, so it's functional!

Both pieces are authored separately despite the seemingly similar
names.  Both are "free as in beer", no source (I don't think), but
fairly liberal redistribution rights.  About as good as can be
expected in the MS world (OK, short of GPL :-).

I'm still working on the SuSE/soundcard thing.  I upgraded the "other"
PC at N5UWY/9 to 9.2 as part of my ongoing and never-ending quest to
build a PVR and it seems to be even better with hardware, so I think
I'll probably do the same to the "radio" PC.

Thanks for the info!
