[ct-user] Fwd: multi-two transmitter identification - ARRL reply

The other day I posed the question below to N1ND as to whether the TX1/TX2
ID flag is still required in a Cabrillo log output.  Here is his response.
Thus multi-two (callsign).txt outputs from CT version 9.57.004 will NOT meet
HQ requirements and will be reclassified as multi-multi logs.  I have filed
a bug report and will see what earlier versions of CT produce in terms of
output.  Beware:

Hi Jim:

The very last column in the Cabrillo line-by-line log file is for the
transmitter designator in the Multi-Two category.  It does need to be there
for the entry or the entry will automatically be reclassified as a
Multi-Multi since the band changes can not be calculated.

Thanks and 73

Dan:  FYI.  Trying to get logs ready to file but there seems to be a
problem.  Please confirm that the transmitter ID really needs to be
for a Cabrillo log.  I can see how a log-checking program could check
the six band changes without the TX ID, but the rules do require it.  I
filing a "bug report" with CT.

It sounds like Ct is broken - file a bug at www.k1ea.com
