For those who like their competition a little more eXtreme...
RFSport.com is offering another opportunity to participate in a Contest Within
A Contest (CWAC) for anyone wishing to use the free SportLogger contest logging
system (which may be downloaded from http://www.RFSport.com). While the
software is considered "alpha version" (and should be treated as such, if you
use it), it appeared to play well for previous sprint events.
This is unique approach to radio sports. While there are many features of the
system described on the web site, some of the highlights include:
1. SportLogger is a *real time* contest logging system. Accuracy is part of
the competition. Participants may modify their logs during the competition
only. Once the event has concluded, no further editing is permitted. Edit
simply by double-clicking in the log-window.
2. SportLogger is a *real time* score boarding system for "always on" Internet
connected participants and a *near real time* system for "on demand" (dial-up)
Internet participants. Scores and log entries are sent to a central score
boarding system in real-time (or cached and uploaded when an Internet
connection is sensed). Logged callsigns are "masked" during the competition
(to reduce unsportsmanlike conduct) and revealed at the end.
3. RFSport.com hosts an archive of past CWAC'd events. See the "Scoreboard
Central" hyperlink on http://www.RFSport.com to view them.
4. Cabrillo logs can be generated for submittal to the event sponsor.
Remember: RFSport is not affiliated with the event sponsor. Participants must
still submit their entry according to sponsor rules.
5. RFSport certificates are based on performance relative to the rest of the
field. Scores in the 70th Percentile will qualify for a Silver-level
certificate showing that they scored higher than 70 percent of other
participants. Scores in the 90th percentile will qualify for a Gold-level
certificate showing that they scored higher than 90 percent of the other
