I have not done this yet myself but I would imagine that if you enter at least your grid square and state into the designated log fields in ACL and turn on the override in TQSL it should work. I do see a Grid S field in ACL but there doesn't seem to be a way to put it in the data entry area. It looks like you can enter it for your most recent QSO logged by using the QSO Edit form>More and it will fill from there. You could also fill it manually (as MY_GRIDSQUARE) in your ADIF export with ADIF Master. You might want to get in contact with K0BAK, he is a prolific park activator and no doubt has used this a lot although I think he uses N1MM for his park roves.

Re: CQ WW D Contest Logger

Scott Davis
 

Hi JoAnn,

Thanks for your e-mail.  Folks use other modes besides SSB.  FM is common in VHF and Field Day for example, so when rig interface is not used, the opportunity to map the actual mode is presented on export.  If you set up rig interface, the actual mode returned by your rig will be recorded instead of PH.

The ADIF function defaults to SSB on export, so generally, going with the export defaults is fine.

Enjoy!

Scott,
    I know you have a reason for doing this but LOTW has a headache with it.
When the Contest was over, I had it not only create a Cabrillo log file which I
sent to CQ. I then had it make an .ADIF file. When I attempted to send this file
to LOTW, LOTW had a headache with it. Saying that the PH for Mode was Invalid.
I had to go back into the Contest Logger, create a new ADIF File but this time I let
it convert the PH to SSB. Then LOTW was happy. SO why do you use PH for SSB
contacts and not SSB? I did notice that the Field Day Logger used PHONE and LOTW
was Happy with that.

Why would you want a 24 hour clock in your log, when the mainstream logging is done in UTC.  You would not be able to confirm your QSOs if you used 24 hour clock logging.
