Altho' I am a newbie to TR I have successfully negotiated the POST procedures
for both the SSB and CW CQ shindigs recently.
In order to get a little more experience I decided to have a run in the TOPS
activity contest(CW) on 80m this w/e. This entailed setting up for a generic 2
s per QSO, RST/serial exchange with WPX multipliers ( I should add that it was
necessary to edit some QSO points on the fly during the contest, as it is not
raightforward as plain 2 pts per Q).
All went OK in the contest and in POST, until I tried to generate a summary
sheet. Nothing happened and I was simply thrown back into the report menu once
but without a specific error message. To check that I wasn't missing something
really stupid, I went back to my CQ logs, deleted the SUMMARY.DAT file and
ted it. This worked FB. There is clearly something about the LOG.DAT file for
this contest which POST does not like, but I cannot think what this might be.
Incidentally I note reference in the POST procedures to a \log\name\address.txt
file generated by POST, but I certainly don't have this file even after
ly running POST.
What am I missing
