[TRLog] IARU Region 1 SSB Field Day 5-6th Sept. & IOTA summary sheet
Wed, 02 Sep 1998 12:18:01 +0100
We are preparing for this weekend's contest and have just
discovered that TR doesn't properly score Region 1 Field Day.
The scoring actually appears to be correct for National Field Day
(a CW contest) which as far as we can tell, is not specifically an
IARU Region 1 contest.
NFD rules assign the following points:
Fixed stations within Europe: 2 pts
Fixed stations outside Europe: 3 pts
/P & /M stations within Europe: 4 pts
/P & /M stations outside Europe: 6 pts
Compare this with this weekend's contest (IARU Region 1 SSB
Field Day) rules:
Fixed stations within IARU Region 1: 2 pts
Stations outside IARU Region 1: 3 pts
/P & /M stations within IARU Region 1: 5 pts
NB Europe isn't equivalent to IARU Region 1 and unless CTY.DAT
has IARU Region numbers, I suspect that getting TR to correctly
log SSBFD will be difficult.
Is it possible to configure TR to correctly score this contest?
On another subject....
IOTA summary sheet generation needs to ask if the station was
"Home" or "Dx-pedition". The RSGB HQ had to ask me to resubmit
my entry and specify this category, I think they had a lot of extra work
because of this.
Many thanks for all your help
