[Mich VHF UHF Society] [BC'ers] RoverLog - Support for new ARRL 222 MHz and Up Distance Contest

Folks,

There was a bug with how RoverLog calculated your score for the August 222
and Up Distance Contest.

The correct version (2_7_5) is at http://roverlog.2ub.org.

Your log should be fine and now your score should be calculated correctly
if you use the new version.

You just need to open inied.tcl once to refresh your ini file (no need to
make changes, just save).

I apologize for the mistake.

Tom.
