Apologies to everyone - I didn't realize that Les, G4OGB had written a
User Defined Contest file to enable support of the WAPC contest. If you
are a non-BY/BV station you will need to download the file
BY_WAPY_DX.udc from the User Defined Contests Files area on the N1MM web
site and save it to the User Defined Contests folder in the N1MM Logger
program directory. Next, download the file BY_WAPC.sec from the same
area into the N1MM Logger program directory proper, and finally, restart
N1MM Logger and go to File > New Contest in Database and select
BY_WAPC_DX. If you are a BY/BV station, you'll need to download
In my quick tests, the UDC does not appear to display a list of province
multiplers and does not appear to track them, so you may want to print
out the list from the contest rules web site. Otherwise, you should be
good to go.
