The CQ WPX Contest is pleased to announce a new log submission tool to convert ADIF format log files into the Cabrillo format needed for the robot. This will enable users of general purpose logging software programs to easily submit their logs for the contest.
The ADIF log conversion wizard begins at http://www.cqwpx.com/adif/
The three step wizard prompts you to upload your adif file, specify the information for your contest entry, and finally to enter your name/address.
You are given the chance to review the Cabrillo file output. It then offers the option to submit the log directly to the logcheck page for final format checking. Once any errors are corrected, one click emails your log directly to the robot. It only takes a few minutes to go from ADIF file to log submission.
The adif converter is designed for use with the CQ WPX RTTY, SSB, and CW contests, but could also be used for any contest that uses serial numbers or zones for the exchange. It is important that users log the sent and received serial numbers and include them in their adif file. Without this information the log can only be accepted as a checklog.
Already have your log in Cabrillo format? Go directly to http://www.cqwpx.com/logcheck/ to upload your log, check its formatting, and submit to the robot. Instant feedback on formatting errors saves you the hassle of waiting for the cryptic robot responses.
Thanks to Tzetzo, LZ2FQ, for his work in creating the adif converter and log submission pages.
See everyone in the 2012 CQ WPX Contests!
