Field Day Log for Satellites #contest #fields


Kn2k@...
 

I see that “Satellite” is listed as a separate band as the rules require. Are there any fields that must be changed by the user to produce a valid FD adif for conversion to cabrillo? Prop_Mode appears to be covered by having “Satellite” as the band. But what about something like SAT_Name or the uplink band? Or are those only for LoTW uploads and not necessary on FD contest records? Tnx de KN2K

From their new AI Technology: Juliet We've never done any satellite work here, but other users have reported success by adding the Prop_Mode and Sat_Name fields to the main form and filling in the values LoTW and the TQSL software are looking for accordingly. You can configure AC Log with these fields on the main form by following the instructions detailed here http://www.n3fjp.com/faq.html#q79.

Hi Raymond,

Thanks for your e-mail.  Unlike other events / contests, Cabrillo is not used for Field Day.  Just include the satellite contacts bonus on ARRL's on line Field Day entry form (http://field-day.arrl.org/fdentry.php).  You will find steps for submitting your Field Day log here:

When logging satellites otherwise, please see this FAQ here:

Be well and enjoy!
