[CQ-Contest] CQ WPX Contest ADIF Log Submissions

The CQ WPX Contest is pleased to announce a new log submission tool to
convert ADIF format log files into the Cabrillo format needed for the robot.
This will enable users of general purpose logging software programs to
easily submit their logs for the contest.


The ADIF log conversion wizard begins at http://www.cqwpx.com/adif/ 


The three step wizard prompts you to upload your adif file, specify the
information for your contest entry, and finally to enter your name/address.
You have a chance to review the Cabrillo file output. It offers the option
to submit the log directly to the logcheck page for final format checking.
Once any errors are corrected, one click emails your log directly to the
robot.  It only takes a few minutes to go from ADIF file to log submission.


The adif converter is designed for use with the CQ WPX RTTY, SSB, and CW
contests, but could also be used for any contest that uses serial numbers or
zones for the exchange. It is important that users log the sent and received
serial numbers and include them in their adif file. Without this information
the log can only be accepted as a checklog.


Already have your log in Cabrillo format? Go directly to
http://www.cqwpx.com/logcheck/ to upload your log, check its formatting, and
submit to the robot. Instant feedback on formatting errors saves you the
hassle of waiting for the cryptic robot responses.


Thanks to Tzetzo, LZ2FQ, for his work in creating the adif converter and log
submission pages.


See everyone in the 2012 CQ WPX Contests!
