I use these...







More than that?

I do like the idea of some tool filling my outlook calendar with dates for
the year so I can plan.  Seems like these folks do a lot of work building
these calendars...putting them into something like google would be
cool...maybe someone should recommend it to them?

This has been done for iCal, the Apple calendar system. Mac / iCal  
users can just subscribe to the calendar and it shows up on the  
screen with periodic updates. The downside is that you need someone  
to diligently update the master the way WA7BNM does. The owner of the  
master calendar on iCal at times is not quite as diligent as we would  
like, although he does do a pretty good job.

This seems like another area where a standard method of publishing  
contest information would be handy. The first area? Why a standard  
contest format/logging/cabrillo document would make contest program  
setup much nicer. I'm just happy that we at least have Cabrillo. It's  
a step. thanks, Trey!
