• We chose not to trust received Cabrillo log file but to regenerate it's header based on your selections from the Web App, as V.3.0 standard. This regenerated log will be used for arbitration !
  • Uploaded files are limited to "cbr", "log" and "txt" format with max file size 150K. Any other files will be visually rejected.
  • A bare minimum log checks were implemented, where Callsign, working mode, sent report and many other error will visually be seen marked in RED. Users have to fix errors, otherwise Submitting is not possible. This is implemented due to 2023 logs errors where some players did not bother double checking and sent us wrong files and many other severe errors that had to be manually fixed by YODX team. Not gonna happen anymore !

  • Questions and Answers

    Should I delete dupes from log?

    No ! As long as we do not use penalties, do yourself and others a favour and let it there !

    Can I submit Again ?

    Yes, for sure ! Submiting again will reset old values sent before and put new ones. As human beings, we do mistakes !

    (YO only) I sent serial number instead of County. Should I delete sent number and replace it with County prefix ?

    Doing so you will invalidate others QSO and still not gaining any points. As long as Web App will reject your log file in this case, you have to send it via email as Checklog. Honnor must be saved, aint it ?

    Why you rewrite my log file ?

    We do not rewrite your log file but generating a new one. Many formats, many mistakes. Someone has to work hard to corect those mistakes, some of them cannot be corected. Therefore, Web App is rebuilding it but making you more responsable about log sent to us!

    Confirmation sent back 2 files

    Yes, the one renamed with "ORIGINAL" is the one sent by you and the second one is what the software rebuilt. Also, you will receive a checksum for both files for future debates ! A checksum is a unique value who changes for each character modified in log file

    Where can I see if my log arrived ?

    When all good and you click on CLOSE button, you will be automatically redirected to received logs page and you should find your callsign there. Mouse over your callsign will extra show all category informations you have submitted via Input Page
