Everyone who made a contact during the contest is welcome to submit a log entry. All
logs are helpful for the checking process. Logs may be submitted by web upload or by email.
Web upload is the preferred method for submitting a log. Go to cqwpxrtty.com/logcheck/
and follow the instructions. The log should be in Cabrillo format.
The web page will inform you if there are any
formatting errors in your log and give you the opportunity to fix them.
Your callsign should be the only thing in the subject line of the email.
(Subject: W0YK or Subject: W0YK/KH6)
There should be nothing in the body text area of the email.
The log file should be an attachment to the email. The name of the log
file should be call.log, with call being the callsign used in the
contest. If you operated portable, substitute a hyphen (-) for the slash,
e.g. W0YK/KH6 should name the log file w0yk-kh6.log.
The log should be in Cabrillo format.
(Note that this is based on the
current Cabrillo 3.0 specification. Cabrillo 2.0 logs are also accepted
by the robot and converted into 3.0 format automatically.) The robot will
send you a reply email message confirming receipt of your log. If there
are format errors, the response email will describe what the problem
is so you can edit the log and email again to the robot. If you can't get
an error-free response from the robot, ask for help with an email to
Log File Checklist
When you prepare your log file, please note the following:
The log begins with START-OF-LOG: 3.0 and has both hyphens
with a colon at the end.
Check the header area of the log to be sure there are spaces after
the colons and the keys are properly hyphenated.
The contest name in the log is CONTEST: CQ-WPX-RTTY This
is the only name that is accepted.
The category is one of the standards shown below.
The time and date (UTC) of each QSO must be within the contest period.
If not, the robot will reject those QSO lines and may think the log
is for the wrong contest.
The last line in the log is END-OF-LOG:
Be sure each line in the header has a key.
If you need more lines for your address or for your comments , add
up to seven ADDRESS: and as many SOAPBOX: lines as you need.
