> Subject: [CQ-Contest] Stew Perry e-mail log address
> As you probably know, many contests are now requiring the Cabrillo format
> to be used for e-mailed logs.  This includes all of the ARRL contests.
> Using Cabrillo allows us to use "robots" to scan your log and make sure 
> everything looks right.  The robots generate a reply message which will
> indicate if there were any problems.  You can fix the problems and 
> resubmit your log as many times as needed.  It also gives you 
> confidence that your log was received.
> Having the robots do this means that we can automate some of the 
> processes that used to be done manually.  It will help prevent 
> QRP logs from being listed as high power and from your 10 meter 
> log being lost because you sent it to the wrong address.
> A robot is now available for the Stew Perry contest.  This would be
> the better place to send your log if it is in Cabrillo format.  I
> believe TR Log is the only program that will generate a Cabrillo
> log for the Stew Perry, but if you are using the VHF mode in the
> other programs, you should be able to generate a Cabrillo log with
> a couple of minor edits.
> Change the CONTEST: to STEW-PERRY and make the CATEGORY one of the 
> following:
> The Cabrillo format specification for the Stew Perry can be found
> at http://www.kkn.net/~trey/cabrillo/.  Note that the QSO format
> includes both the sent and received RST.  The contest rules do not 
> require the RST to be sent or received, but having a "fake" RST 
> here is required.
> The e-mail address to send your log to the robot is tbdc@kkn.net.
> If you send your log to this address, you do not need to send it 
> to the old address (tbdc@contesting.com).  The old address will 
> still work for non-Cabrillo logs - at least for this year.  Any
> Cabrillo log sent to the old address will be bounced to the robot.
> If you have any questions about this message, please contact me
> directly.
> The Stew Perry rules are at http://web.jzap.com/k7rat/stew.html.
> The contest runs this weekend.
