[NA-User] Cabrillo and M/2 logs for NAQP

The rules also say one other thing...
5.b.iii Shall keep a separate log for each transmitter.

However in the log submission part it doesn't say anything about having
separate logs (it seems to indicate a singular log)?  I haven't submitted a
multi log before for naqp so I have no idea what they really want.

What you are observing is the fact that NA does not save sent information
for each QSO.  I bet that the name you get in the sent field changes based
on which qdf file is loaded when you generate the log?

There are several ways around this:
 - Use the same name on both xmtr.
 - Use NAU.EXE, F1-File Conversions, F6 Separate a .qdf, 
   now you have a choice to use by multi-2 xmtr or by computer number.
 - Use NAU.EXE, F1-File Conversions, F4-Merge two qdf files and
   put the appropriate two split files together back into one qdf.
 - Several other ways come to mind but they involve editing the cabrillo
   file, so for simplicity you can hopefully use one of the first 2

Hope that helps?

I've been testing in preparation of this weekend's NAQP.  NA 10.59 on 2 PCs 
with LINK network.  The *.log output file does have the 0 & 1 as the last 
character in each QSO line to indicate XMTR1 and XMTR2.  However, the SENT 
TEXT is the same for both XMTRs, even though in each computer's *.QDF file 
the SENT TEXT is different (the name of each operator).

NCJ rules appear to indicate that the name must be correctly indicated in 
each QSO.

How can I accomplish this?
