Log submission is only available from contest start to log submission deadline.
Logs will be rejected:
outside of log submission dates
incorrect contest name
missing header information
invalid QSO lines
if the user has changed cabrillo header options that are not part of an option.
Any errors indicate a problem with the log and it is up to the user to rectify and resubmit.
Users are encouraged to have name, address, postcode and email lines filled out.
Email is required for robot response and certificate mail out.
Log upload conformation is available if the Cabrillo 3 contains the email line, EMAIL: email@..., but will see confirmation on screen regardless.

Australia Day - 26th January
Fists Down Under - 3rd weekend in February
QRP Hours - April and October

Cabrillo contest names are required in the cabrillo header.
In conjunction with DotEukali and Alan Shannon Computers & Cabling, we have developed a website to ease the load for contest managers. Catering for some VK contests, we now have automated log uploads, automated cross checking for contacts, duplicates and busted calls. Logs are scored and ranked into categories.
Admin can create future contests denoting starting contest time and finish as well as log upload start and end dates. Once these dates come around, the relevant options become available, like log upload and a modal displaying the calls uploaded. Once the log deadline is reached the log upload button disappears.
Cabrillo Version 3 is the log requirement and users wanting a robot reply will need to have their email address in the log. The user will also have screen confirmation of a successful upload.
Operators should NOT change the header as created by the logger. If something is incorrect, reload the log with the correct parameters and recreate the cabrillo log.
The correct Cabrillo name must be in the log if using a direct upload from a logger like VKCL.
