> 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
> SINGLE-OP ALL QRP
> SINGLE-OP ALL LOW
> SINGLE-OP ALL HIGH
> MULTI-ONE ALL QRP
> MULTI-ONE ALL LOW
> MULTI-ONE ALL HIGH
> 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
> If you send your log to this address, you do not need to send it
> to the old address (email@example.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
> The Stew Perry rules are at http://web.jzap.com/k7rat/stew.html.
> The contest runs this weekend.
