Introduction

Cabrillo - A log in the Cabrillo format has three parts always.

Template: The Header (the minimum for the TMC)

<con-call> the callsign you have used in the contest
<class> Class 1 = SINGLE-OP ALL LOW
Class 2 = SINGLE-OP ALL HIGH
Class 3 = MULTI-MULTI ALL LOW
Class 4 = MULTI-MULTI ALL HIGH
Checklog = CHECKLOG
<op-call> SINGLE-OP: your own callsign, if you have used a different call (<con-call>) in the contest; otherwise you don't need this line
MULTI-MULTI: the list of the operators; their callsigns
<name> your full name
<email> your email address. This line is desired, but not a must! If your log programm does not support it, then you can edit your Cabrillo log with NotePad® or any similar editor. Be careful! Create a backup copy of your Cabrillo log before!
<address> your address, incl. country. Use as much ADDRESS lines as you need!

Template: The Header Extensions (you can use SOAPBOX lines as much as you like)

Template: The QSO line (two variation are allowed; with or without the RST)

<con-call> the callsign you have used in the contest
<ls> your "Maidenhead Grid Square Locator", sent
<callsign> the callsign of the station, worked
<lr> the "Maidenhead Grid Square Locator", received

Template: The QSO line with an extension, especial for the classes 3 + 4: Multi, All Band, ...

<s> The number of the station: 1, 2, 3, ...

Enter the locator by hand in the field "Comment"; it is not case sensitive.

At the end of the contest you should use a little MSDOS program to convert your  <****.all>  file to a Cabrillo log! Nils, SM6BSK has provided it for me. Get it. See the template for the Cabrillo format at  the top  of this web page to check your  <<callsign>.log>  then!
