      Fldigi-3.21.52 worked very good with my TS-590S with an iMac using OS X 10.8.2. The only issue I had was getting the CQ contest robot to accept my fldigi generated Cabrillo Report.  The problem was with the format of the QSOs and a missing DX statement. 

      This is the fldigi generated format:
      QSO: 21087 RY 2012-09-29 1840 AA5VU         599  04 TX     G6NHU         599 14   

      This is what the robot expected:
      QSO: 21087 RY 2012-09-29 1840 AA5VU         599  04 TX     G6NHU         599 14 DX

      I added the "DX" statements to the Cabrillo Report with a text editor to satisfy the CQ contest robot. I was able to get the ARRL tqsl.app to sign my aa5vu.log file and all QSO's have been uploaded to the LoTW robot.  The CQ Contest rules do not  mention the need to add the DX but the examples show the DX statement.

      Fun contest and it was nice to have 10 meters open.  It was the money band this year

      PS: TNX to Keith G6NHU and Ed W3NR for the contest QSO's.
