Just a week or so to go before the log deadline for the IOTA Contest. We have about 1150 logs so far, but there are over 300 stations who appear 100 times or more in the database who have yet to submit. Do please send us your logs: iota.logs at rsgbhfcc.org 

All those who submitted should get an automatic reply from the robot, asking you to go to a web page to complete submission (and upload a photograph, should you wish to do so). If you have not received that reply, you sent to the wrong address or, as seems to have happened to some people, you did get the reply but it was trapped by your Spam filter! Do check to see if that is the case.

If you cannot create a Cabrillo file, don't worry - we can convert most formats. But do bear in mind that the latest version of CT does generate Cabrillo for IOTA - seems that many people are still using older versions of CT. Always check your log with a text editor before sending - oince again we have received logs with no IOTA references, no serial numbers, or no data at all! WA7BNM offers an online facility for creating a suitable log, if you made just a few QSOs:  http://www.b4h.net/cabforms/iota_cab.php 

Anyway, it looks as those conditions in this year's contest were somewhat better than the abysmal conditions we encountered in 2004, and we seem set to have a record number of entries. Many thanks to all those who took part.
