Hi,

 

When I use the Export Cabrillo function to create a contest report, I see only the first three digits of the reports sent and received?

 

          e.g.     591065         591

                     59102           591

                     59001           590

                     59022           590

                     59099           590

 

What am I doing wrong? And how may I get all the digits into the exported file.

 

Thank you for your help!

The contest exchange consists of two separate parts that should be stored in separate locations -- the signal report (59) and the serial number. You should have entered them into separate fields when you logged them. The signal report part should be stored in the received RST field, while a serial number should be stored in the rx# field. At this point, if you have already stored both in the same field (probably the received RST field), you need to copy the serial number part into the rx# field, and edit the RST rcvd field to contain only the RST.

+ Cabrillo varies from contest to contest. To successfully generate a Cabrillo log from a set of QSOs, you must record data in the
items appropriate for that contest, as documented in the large table in the reference documentation for Contesting:

<https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxkeeper/Help/Contesting.htm>;

+ As recommended in this documentation, one should log a few test QSOs before the contest, generate Cabrillo from those test QSOs,
and verify that the result is as expected.
