This is the first time I've used a logging program to generate a Cabrillo-format log, and I could use some help. (I've filed Cabrillo logs before, creating them manually using spreadsheet programs... believe me, automatic generation is better!)

In the ARRL-DX-CW contest I simply used my everyday log, entering the other station's power in one of my RST columns; the other RST column was populated from my transceiver with numbers that have no meaning that I can determine (the 53's below). When I exported to Cabrillo and opened the Cabrillo file in a text editor, I got entries like these first five. The sample Cabrillo log has mode (CW) between frequency (7000 here) and date, columns for the two standard 599's, and maybe something else...

How can I fix this (346 QSOs), and how should I have set up Xlog before the contest?

I would open a text editor and do Find/Replace for the 53. I really don't think your rig placed those entries in your RST box.

I would have opened the manual and looked under keyer window. That's where the contest setup info is located. The Manual link is located in the Help tab.
