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?

According to the Cabrillo output you worked all 346 Q's on 7.000 ??


Well, the first five were on 40m, and that's all I included here! I don't know why the precise frequency wasn't exported; other QSOs show 3500, 14000, and 21000. Here is a snapshot of my Xlog page, showing (at the bottom) the five QSOs included in the original post.


Success... after a fair amount of "Replace" using the text editor... Here are what the first five QSOs look like in the log accepted by the robot.

Thanks for working with me on this, Ed!
