[TRLog] How To: Adding a New Contest?
Mon, 10 Apr 2000 10:25:53 EDT
QRP To The Field 2000, one of the big QRP field contests, is due up Saturday
Arpil 29th. It will use a report and scoring that is not appearantly
available in TRLOG. I know lots of guys in the contest would like to use
TRLOG (but may end up using pencil and paper) because I cannot see how it is
possible to configure it to even recognize the categories. If anyone knows
how to do this, please let me know and I will post the answer on QRP-L.
If it is not possible in TRLOG, what major logging program will handle this?
OK now the details--
The exchange is RST, SPC, Location Category.
Those categories are (with their pts/contact):
MM for marine mobile (25)
OC for ocean (20)
WT for other water location (15)
FD for field location (10)
HO for home (5)
SPC's count once per band.
Final Score = Total Pts x Total SPC's x Location Mult for your location.
The location mults are
MM = X5
OC = X4
WT = X3
FD = X2
HO = X1
Any help is appreciated as I HATE entering a log manually after a great, and
tiring, day afield.
