Late to the Party?

Like many, just returned last year to ham radio after decades away.  Lots of progress, like Cabconverter, BUT I see it's at its sunset.  Was just getting ready to try it when I saw the developer's message.  Was going to use it to send in a 40-item check log for ARRL DX contest just completed but now it looks like I'm too late.  Skookum next time, but should I bother now (Big Sur) or just submit hand log and move on to SL for future.  Thanks, W6MVT

Good morning!

The future is Skookum Logger, but we should be able to get your QSOs converted for the recent contest. CabConverter supports the ARRL DX contest. If you start the program from the command line of the Terminal application you should be able to go through the steps. If you do have trouble, let us know and we'll lend a hand.

I tried using CC but found an easier way to submit Cabrillo logs from my Mac. I now use RUMLogNG to record my contest QSOs. It will then do a conversion to Cabrillo just fine. I successfully submitted a ARRL DX contest log just fine this way. My general logging program is Aether, so then I just export my RUMLog contest QSOs as an ADIF and then import into my main Aether log. I do it this way because the current Aether does not export to an acceptable Cabrillo file (hopefully future versions will fix this).

Hope this is useful,

Hi Scott,

CabConverter did not survive migration from my old to new Mac.  I have an ADIF file from the ARRL Phone contest and the contest submission site does not offer Cad conversion - I don’t want to hand enter the file.

Is a version of CabConverter available to run on OS 11.2.2?  

Any help/suggestions appreciated.

Hi Scott
I am using Cab Converter 2.05 and logging with MLDX. I had zero issues exporting adi file from logger and converting it to a cabrillo file with CabConverter last night after ARRL DX. Since I can't seem to get a handle on how to make Skookumlogger work for me, I will stick with the MLDX>CC arrangement. All the contests that are meaningful to me are covered by these two apps. I am running Mojave on a WorkBook Pro.

Good morning,

I just got a new MacBook Air, so I can run CabConverter on the version you have. But, to be safe, if you email me your ADIF file (ne1rd --at-- arrl -- dot -- net) I will do the conversion for you. You'll have to edit the resulting text file to fill in your name, address, etc., but that shouldn't be too bad.

In the mean time, you could try to install CabConverter again and run it from the Terminal application as described on the main web page in GroupsIO.

I'll do the conversion for you after work. I know we have a log submission deadline fast approaching.

I think the latest CabConverter should run (although not jump to Bur Sur yet). There are instructions on the site on how to run it in latest OS - basically you have to run it from the terminal app. See VIDEO
