Hi Byron,

Fantastic work!

I've got Mysql loaded in my shack computer to manage my logbook and 
you're right... a relational database beats the heck out of hunting and 
picking through a static .pdf file, any day.  There are a lot of old 
entries in this file that could be culled but as you say, if this 
database was the product of real-time information, it would speed up the 
search process for amateurs hunting pairs.
