CQ WW log submittal

The robot would not accept my cabrillo file generated by the contest log (v5.8). I had to create adif file and use their log converter. Kept saying my mode (CW) and contest (CQ-WW-CW) did not match. It was correct, but the robot would not accept it.

Same here, but I sent it in anyway and the robot fixed it.  I think it’s a robot issue.

Hi Bobby,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I'm sorry that you ran into trouble.  There have been no changes to the Cabrillo output for several years now, no other problem reports and my 830 QSOs were just accepted fine.

CW is the correct mode for the CQ WW CW contest.

Yes, a robot error. John Dorr advised me it would be fixed today.

Thanks for the information Larry.  

Did you guys use the on line submittal form?  Mine went fine, without errors.  Maybe they just fixed the robot?

Idea?
When you install your software can you add the option for resolution or size of monitor I use a 40in monitor as primary an spend my time trying to get all fonts and screens to line up upon shutting down and starting over

Those who were too eager got the ‘no CW in a CW’ error. Was fixed at their end by Monday morning.
