in response to the subject needs some clarification.
When I saw N8NOE's earlier posting about not being able to
create a Cabrillo file, I tried running the contest and ran into
the same problem. I have been checking and now understand
To follow in Jeff's footsteps I used the same cocoaModem
"RST Exchange" template. That particular template works
great; however, it will not generate a detailed Cabrillo file.
It just creates the header. For this reason do not use this
template if you will need to create a Cabrillo .log file.
The best I can tell the other standard cocoaModem templates
work and will Create Cabrillo outputs. Again, users are
cautioned that each contest has specific Cabrillo requirements
and the saved format may or may not be correct. Read the
contest rules most are very specific on the format.
The standard cocoaModem template that works best for
most contests is the "RST QSO Number" but be careful
as it will only log number reports. It will not log the 2-letter
oblast reports the Russians will be sending this weekend.
For the Russian RTTY WW Contest: 0000Z-2400Z, Sep 6
just log each QSO by typing a 99, then open the Show Log
and use the Locked/Unlocked button and change the 99
logged to the 2-letter oblast you received. Don't forget to
"Save"after you make the change. There should be no
issue logging the CQ zones that will be give out by non-RU
I hope W7AY drags his feet on disabling the contest menu
as most of the current cocoaModem 2.0 contest templates
I took Chen's advise and have tried the Windows based
MMTTY running under Parallels. It works but the decoding is
poor compared to cocoaModem running native under OSX.
I must have some screwed up XP Pro SP3 settings as the
received audio under MMTTY is not contest ready on an
Intel iMac under Parallels using the Signalink USB Audio
Codec sound card interface. Something is not right.
I am willing to help anyone with programming skills that is
willing to accept Chen's offer to take over the cocoaModem
I hope this clarification on the subject problem helps.
