Importing Contest Logs from Ham Radio Delux


mupangam@...
 

Good evening,
I took part in last weekends ARRL SSB DX Contest (as a DX station) and (unwisely it turns out) logged my QSO’s in Ham Radio Delux.

I assumed that it would be a straight-forward matter to export the contest logs from HRD in Cabrillo format, and thereafter submit them for o the ARRL online portal, as a Cabrillo file.

Alas, I have had a torrid time as I am failing to export from HRD to a Cabrillo file, with the correct field, in the correct order.

I have bought N3FJP in the hope that I can export the contest ADI log file from HRD and import it directly into N3FJP and then export it out of N3FJP as a Cabrillo file, for online input on the ARRL Contest Portal.

I have been a bit long-winded, but time is running out and I am becoming desperate 😅😨.

So, in short, is it possible to import an ADI file from HRD and export a corresponding ARRL DX Contest compatible Cabrillo file from N3FJP?

And, if so, how can I do this?

Thanks in advance for any advise/help.

I save the ADI file from HRD to my desktop, then go in my N3FJP software and import that ADI file into my N3FJP software.

In order to produce a cabrillo file, it must be created in the contest program.  You will need to (and can) import the ADIF file into the ARRL DX contest program and not ACLog.
