Add option feature to Block Windle Spots If Month Is Already Used. This option allows you to see only those Windle spots that you need.

Fixed earliest QSO for WAS award has to be after the start of year 2000.
Added a duplicate QSO removal function. Multiple qsos used in the previous years Windle awards can be removed to minimize the size of the database. QSOs used for all other FOC awards remain in the database and QSOs made for the current year are not affected. The dupe removal function should not be over used, just once at the end of the year after all the year's QSOs have been entered is the proper way to use the feature.

A new checkbox which can be found below the available QSO list on the WindleEdit screen allows the user to more quickly move through the errors if the option is not checked.
FAM was designed for english-United States date formats. Added Globalization for "en-US" to the program to force US date format regardless of the actual location; this does not affect the UTC use for QSO date-time.
Reworked the Alert structure to solve problems with the FOC activity notifications.
Modified the Windle verification function to check for duplicate bands and check for valid month.

Version not released, changes incorporated into version 1.09.
Fix date problem not allowing import of member.
160M and 60M conflict because of the way the original program was designed. Had to add delimiters to make 160M and 60M unique to each other.

New, When viewing a Windle record in WindleEdit, user may double click to highlight the entire line of a given QSO. Also when changing the Windle entry, a different QSO may be copied directly over an existing QSO, so no typing is needed.
New, When viewing incoming spots the user can use the mouse to either look at the Windle for the member referenced in the spot, or quickly and directly log the spot into the FAM database, if the station was worked. The function is changed by clicking the button on the lower left corner of the spot listing. In conjunction with this function, the user may also elect to automatically call the the WIndleEdit screen after a QSO is entered or not call WindleEdit.
Fixed Member Listing so that the "Y" tab points to Augies worked.

Plan is to make the update automatic, but that automation is not in this release.
Added a join date to the system page, it is used to block QSOs made before your join date.
Made changes to the "WindleEDIT" tab, this is mainly related to button positions and color, and some minor operational changes.
Made changes to the ADI import function so that the Windle count is added if there is no previous entry in the month of the QSO for the current year.

Fixed ADI import function to automatically import "G4FOC" QSOs with a Member Nr of zero and the UK (G) country tag. If the operator is known, then you should enter the QSO as a single QSO where you can make the changes needed to identify the operator.
