Hi Nick,

Thanks for the constructive feedback!

It looks pretty simple to pick exactly one column to be the sort column, and the CALL column is the one used by the code today. It is a simple modification to make the DATE column as the sort column. You could do that yourself if you feel comfortable with such things. It is in the src/gui_b4window.c file (look for line 192, 225, and 226, or I can send you a patch upon request).

However, it appears that it is not possible to make multiple columns sortable.

Notice that if the log already contained KB1OI and KB1OIQ, and one filled in KB1OI in the "New QSO Call" box, both would show in the "Worked Before" window. I'm guessing that's the rationale for sorting on the CALL column.

If I change the default behavior, those who like it as it is will probably be unhappy. I could theoretically make this a preference setting, but it would still be one or the other (sort by DATE or by CALL but not both).

I'd like to give other interested parties a chance to offer their opinion.
