[WriteLog] WF1b/Writelog format SP contest
Mon, 29 Apr 2002 22:36:51 -0000
Hello Don and Friends,
It is sad information, but SPDX RTTY doesn't accept Cabrillo... There are
separate Contest Commitees for SPDX CW/SSB and for RTTY part.
The software developed by Marek SP7DQR is ONLY for CW/SSB part and the
software doesn't know RTTY mode. Of course Marek could change it, but I
think Cabrillo is not prefered format for Contest Manager of SPDX RTTY.
My suggestion is: make ASCII file by band, ASCII by time, summary sheet and
duplicate list. You can do these three files from WriteLog without editing
it in Notepad.
