Hello agn Frank.

You are one of the contesters that let us know the problem with the scoring.

We have get contact with the "Robot man" UA9QCQ, he had a fault in the calculation algoritm. The problem is corrected very fast på Oleg. SM5FUG Jan have all contact with Oleg. Jan had just send information on RTTY-reflector. N1MM reflector will be by OH2LU.
How abouth Writelog-reflector? I dont have acsess. Could you help?
You can use this text.


The log robot has calculated the claimed score wrong.
Many of you have seen that and also informed us.

This is now  corrected.. The scores in the claimed
list are now updated and should be correct. There is
no need to resend the log.

I have down loaded some logs and will check the
scoring in detail. The final score will be calculated
with our well proven software.

This is our first try with a robot, it will save us
a lot of work and we encourage you all to use it.

Oleg/UA9QCQ gives excellent support and will do his
best to correct any other fault that hopefully not shows up.

We still of course accept logs by email, but please do
not send logs both ways.

Thanks for taking part in SARTG WW contest.

I hope you remember us from Dayton 2001, the trip was fantastic.
All our US RTTY-friends take verry good care of us, we was in "high seat" Hi Hi. Bill Henry at HAL, was a fantastic man to meet. I have not print him for many years. I still have a couple of HAL-modems PCI-3000, PCI-4000, DSP 4100, DXP38, dont use them at the moment.
Today I use MicroKeyer II with Win-Test and RCK-RTTY-Skimmer

Nice to print you in contest, back to the logs.

Subject: N2FF log sent to UA99QCQ Questions....

I had a great time in the recent SARTG RTTY Contest.

In reading the rules it appears that I can submit 2 logs for the contest
if I enter if I enter the E category - single op/single/TX/All Band/ low
power.  Which I did.  Note one seems to indicate that I can also submit
the same log for a single band.  I just now submitted a 15 meter log
after renaming the log to N2FF_15.log.  When I checked the submitted
logs the original all band log is NOT shown.  What did I do wrong?

Apparently there is no high and low power category for single band
logs?  I am more interested in seeing how I did when compared to all the
low power stations in the all band category.

Please advise if I should again submit another cabrillo log.

Another issue I noticed.  The robot lowered the points on my all band
submission.  I used Writelog for the contest.  If there is an error in
the way Writelog calculates the points, please let me know so that I can
alert the guys who write the scrip for that log.

I especially enjoyed the format of the three eight hour contest
periods.  It made life much simpler for my 74 year old body to stay in
most of the contest.
