[TRLog] Cabrillo file
Wed, 21 Nov 2001 13:17:14 +0100
cabrillo for vk/zl (or Oceania) is probably broken.
At least it is in 6.57.
In any case a workaround exists.
make a file like the following:
MY CALL = ZL1AIH
CONTEST = CQ WPX
save it as vkzlxx.cfg (for instance)
copy your log.dat file into a new file
now run post
under the first screen
CONTEST SELECTION MENU
select the vkzlxx
into next screen select C = Create Cabrillo file
and answers to all questions.
You should get the vkzlxx.cbr file OK now.
Just edit all the info
(like the score if it is not correct)
in the header and you are done.
hope this helps.
GL and 73
