I second Tonno's request as far as Russian DX contest is concerned. I
have tried the difficult route more then one year ago requesting Trey
to include RDXC into Cabrillo specs. We went as far as Cabrillo
version 3 (proposed) on his site. Anyway nothing happened since last
year December. Trey stopped answering emails. I have got reports from
several other people who tried to extend Cabrillo specs for
additional contest that they have encountered similar situation with
Trey not responding. That includes some software writers as well.
So may be Tree find it possible to implement Cabrillo like output for
Russian DX contest and the problem will get solved for the time
