Two main stream programs (one probably being the most "popular")
don't generate valid Cabrillo for a mainstream contest like IARU?
Like logs received for the recent ARRL DX SSB, it's amazing that
something like 70% of entries have various silliness & after that
probably another 10% will have problems with the QSO data itself.
I can understand how Cabrillo is a mess for non-mainstream events -
but how can we _still_ be having problems (whatever they may be)
so many years on for something like IARU?
What is so difficult about implementing what is in the spec?
