This information is not correct.  All your instructions do is tell someone
how to print a list of the prefixes that were worked.  It does not print a
log file for submission.  To do that, you go to the File menu and then
"save as" and then choose "File version of print chronological".  Then you
will have a text file that should be renamed yourcall.txt.

I hope the new version of Writelog has a command to just "write all" contest
files.  The summary sheet should also be in ascii text format so that it
can be submitted electronically.  The .rtf version is real pretty, but only
good for sending a hard copy through the mail.

> I'm getting several requests on how to make a TEXT file from a CNT file..
> Eddie W6/G0AZT & Wayne K7WM are the log checker this year for RTTY WPX
> Eddie can't use a .CNT file, mainly because he isn't smart enough to know
> how to convert it. hi (I'm jokeing) :-)  You must convert it I assure you
> he doesn't have time to convert logs he get lots of WPX logs every day.
> Here is what you do..  It's very simple.. Bring up the program select
> WPX98.CNT (or what ever you named it..)  Then click Multipliers (in the
> logging window,) Click Score, at the bottom of the page you will see:
> "Create ASCII prefix listing in WPXPREF.TXT"  Click on that box, then
> click OK.. When you click OK you will then have a WPX98.TXT in your
> C:\Ham\Contest file. That is what you need to send Eddie.. Now go back
> and click Multipliers again then click Score again. This time click on
> Create Summary sheet.. It will display in Notepad, name it yourcall.Sum
> or something like that, so Eddie will know what it is and who it's from.
> It would ba a good idea to remame you WPX98.TXT to yourcall.TXT also. It
> would save Eddie and Wayne a lot of time. Send both to Eddie as a zipped
> or attached file and your done..
> You can also send you log to Wayne K7WM he is a WirteLog user in every
> contest.. If necessary he could convert your .CNT file.. Wayne's address
> is: k7wm@redrivernet.com - Eddie's address is: edlyn@global.california.com
