Tried to access the correct ARRL form for submission to the League-  Hit a road block as Microsoft needed my log in info- 
 
I have never logged in to Microsoft B-4 that I can remember. So another set back-
 
 I think you both have my simple logs I sent you- 
 
This whole electronic submission thing has me not wanting to contest anymore-  Imagine the work to send in a log of a VHF contest with many contacts and bands and times, etc- 
 
I am trying gentlemen, I really am but I keep striking out!! 

Imagine trying to find more room in my small motor home for 2 or 3 computers now- We were cramped for space the last contest and now, OOOH Boy!! 

Specific help is needed to download the Cabrillo required forms and program I guess or James if you are more versed in this Perhaps you could give it a go or call me and walk me through it- JB

Hey James,


I received a call from Joe WD8USA late yesterday after I left for the day.


Before I call him back, did you participate with him and can you give him any pointers on electronic filing of his contest log within the 14 day deadline using the web app at http://contest-log-submission.arrl.org/ ?


Below was my post to the W6YX VHF Reflector yesterday, with a sample log for people to emulate if desired.


Let me know if this is something you can assist him with or if he needs assistance from me in some fashion?


Thanks and 73,


Bart W9JJ

All,

The ARRL "222 MHz and Up Distance Contest" is in the books - how'd you do? Send in your results...

The log deadline is 14 days.

Some have asked what a Cabrillo log header and QSO line might look
like for this event, so below is an example.

The event doesn't expect to find RST in your QSO lines (just like
other VHF contest logs don't show RSTs), so if you are rolling your
own just show calls and 6-digit-grid-locators in each line).

Single QSO example follows:

START-OF-LOG:
LOCATION: CT
CALLSIGN: W9JJ
CLUB: North East Weak Signal Group
CONTEST: ARRL-222
CATEGORY-OPERATOR: SINGLE-OP
CATEGORY-BAND: ALL
CATEGORY-MODE: MIXED
CATEGORY-POWER: LOW
CATEGORY-STATION: FIXED
CATEGORY-TRANSMITTER: ONE
CLAIMED-SCORE: 266
OPERATORS: W9JJ
NAME: Bart Jahnke
ADDRESS: 225 Main St
ADDRESS-CITY: Newington
ADDRESS-STATE-PROVINCE: CT
ADDRESS-POSTALCODE: 06111
ADDRESS-COUNTRY: USA
QSO:  222 PH 2017-08-06 1714 W9JJ  FN31un   N1SV  FN42ep
END-OF-LOG:

Some usual defaults were tossed in above like mode, power,
transmitters, etc, but just the basics are all that are really needed.

Contact me with any questions at my ARRL address:  w9jj at arrl.org

Thanks for participating!

73,
