• 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 all 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!

    Age box is grey lit, cannot input any value !

    The software behind that box will allow adding age only for [ SINGLE-OP + ALL + MIXED + LOW + YN + Checkbox ticked ]

    For all the above conditions met, Age box will become yellow and mandatory, but no more than 18 years old !

    Confirmation sent back 2 files

    Yes, your log file with the header rebuilt by our software and an image kinda like "Print Screen" with your selections. Also, you will receive a checksum for both files for future debates !

    A checksum is a unique signature who changes if someone tamper that file. It is used for security purposes only.

    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 with all the information you have submitted via Input Page

    Also, there is a feature for Searching callsign in Received Logs page.

    I sent my log via Email but no response back !

    Unfortunately, email is not the best and safest method while Service Providers often reject some emails as SPAM or Blacklisted for a reason.

    Wait up to 5 minutes, look for your callsign in Received logs page and if not there, then something bad happened and did not arived!

    In this case, the single and better choice is to use Web uploader provided via our website !

    Your app show me log errors, how do I edit my file to fix it ?

    Navigate to that folder, right click on log file and Open with Notepad, Notepad++, Wordpad, Sublime, etcetera

    Basicaly, you can edit your log file with any text processor !

    Once corrections done, upload it again and click NEXT if no more errors!
