How to install SPAR Winter Field Day

Joseph Hurd <jhboards@...>
 

I have N1MM 1.0.8081.0 installed. Searching on N1MM website, per the directions I find: "The UDC files themselves are found on the N1MM Logger+ website, located under >Files >User Defined Contests go to page 5 and download WDFDA.zip."
I searched the site for this file but I am unable to locate a WDFDA.zip file, only a "Text" file for SPAR WFD.
Where exactly is the WFD file located on N1MM? Are the rest of the instructions at "N1MM+ Winter Field Day Setup - File updated 1/11/2019" correct as written?

Also there is a detailed set of instructions on the facebook group for winter field day on how to install and use it.    Look in the files section of the group.

I think I see the confusion here: I searched for a WDFDA.zip file, but per your link, the correct file is WFDA.zip - I guess that's why I could not find it. Typo in the "N1MM+ Winter Field Day Setup - File updated 1/11/2019" page. The directions say to download WDFDA.zip, then tell you to unzip WFDA.zip. I am easily confused :-).

The new conest info with rules and all can be found at http://www.winterfieldday.org/ The
rules are quite a bit different from the SPAR contest.

I think I see the confusion here: I searched for a/__//_*WDFDA*_/.zip
file, but per your link, the correct file is */WFDA/*.zip - I guess
that's why I could not find it. Typo in the "N1MM+ Winter Field Day

You are correct, SPAR no longer supports WFD. However; it is listed as such here:
