Sending of electronic logs:
Electronic log submissions: The Cabrillo format is prefered but not mandatory. Please make sure that you fill in the Cabrillo header correctly and name the file callsign.log. An additional and COMPLETELY separate single band of choice log for SINGLE-OP ALL entrants must show the same information as above and be named with your callsign_band.log, i.e. sm7bhm_80.log. Information on Cabrillo format for SARTG contest can be found here. Contest name is SARTG-RTTY. Users of RTTY by WF1B should convert their files. A conversion program can be found here. For non-Cabrillo entries only two files are required, callsign.all and callsign.sum. These logs must be in chronological order and show: band, date/time (UTC), call sign, exchange message sent and received, multipliers and QSO points. Please submit electronic logs as plain ASCII-files. Do not send Word, Excel or ADIF-files as they create extra work as they have to manually be converted to ASCII-files before processing. MULTI-ONE stations must include the call signs and names of all operators involved. Log Robot: Cabrillo logs can also be uploaded directly to web-interface. The robot checks the log and a claimed list is also avaible. Paper log submissions: The log must be in chronological order showing the same information as required for electronic ones. In addition, a written summary sheet must be submitted. For logs of more than 100 QSOs also dupe sheet and multiplier sheet must be submitted. Check logs: Check logs are very much appreciated, they are used for cross checking of all entries.
Your comments will be very much appreciated.
