Submitting Logs

ELECTRONIC LOGS

Please submit CQMM DX Contest logs via e-mail to cwjf@cqmmdx.com. Logs are requested to be in the Cabrillo file format. If you are not sure about Cabrillo Format refer to this page: Cabrillo Format.

You can view the current list of Logs Received.

LOG PROCESSING ROBOT

Your Cabrillo format logs is received by a software called Log Processing Robot (or just “robot”). If your log has been submitted correctly, the robot will reply with an e-mail containing a confirmation that all is Ok.

If there is a problem with your log, the robot will send you an error message containing suggestions for how to fix your log. Read this e-mail carefully. Most log submission problems are minor and can be easily corrected. Submit your log as many times as needed.

Once you receive the confirmation e-mail, your log has been accepted and will be listed on Logs Received page.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT:

  • LOG FILE NAME SHOULD BE CALLSIGN-YOU-USED-IN-THE-CONTEST.LOG
    Example: AA1ABC.LOG
  • CHECK CAREFULLY YOUR CATEGORY BEFORE SEND IN YOUR LOG. WHATEVER IS RECORDED IN THE HEADER OF YOUR CABRILLO FILE AT THE TIME YOU SUBMIT YOUR LOG IS HOW WE WILL PROCESS YOUR ENTRY.

Completely fill out the header information in the Cabrillo file. You can do this while you are setting up the contest information in the logging program, or afterward using a well-behaved text editor like Notepad or the DOS editor. Do not edit your log using text editor like MS Word.

Check the Cabrillo file header closely before submitting your log. Items may have been omitted or may be incomplete. If you did not answer all of the questions correctly when you set up the contest in the logging program or have changed your mind about your category, or the operator list has changed and you do not correct these items, the wrong information WILL get posted to the Cabrillo file.

The only way to change your log entry once the robot has accepted it is for you to submit another log.
