CQWW CW 2018 - Thanks for the contacts

Excellent band conditions on the weekend. I didn't put a lot of time in but what I did was
most enjoyable, especially into EU on 15 meters on Saturday and Sunday evening.

Here are two audio files - one for a very sweet organinsed run on Saturday night and one for Sunday night pileups.

Saturday night extract of audio includes:

New VK Contest log checker is ready to use for 2018 contests!

In conjunction with MSWebDesign and Alan Shannon Computers & Cabling, we have developed a
website to ease the load for contest managers. So far the Remembrance Day, Trans Tasman, and the
Harry Angel logs are catered for. Automated cross checking, duplicates and busted calls are checked.
Logs are scored and after the log upload cutoff date, the results are automatically made available.
Ultimately PDF certificates will be generated and emailed to the winners.
Logs are required to be in Cabrillo Version 3 format and can be uploaded at

N1MM LOGGER - User Defined Contests

For those who like N1MM as a logger program, I have written User Defined Contest loggers for:

  1. VK Trans Tasman Low Band Challenge | New rule structure for 2015 | MUST read PDF first.
  2. John Moyle Field Day - A must for the HF only Multi-multi portable contesters as it keeps the
    logs in order in a networked environment. Also good for the HF Single Op Portable. New update 4/4/2018
  3. VK QRP Hours contest - There was no logger to cater for this contest, but now there is!
  4. Harry Angel Memorial Sprint
  5. Remembrance Day Contest. Please Read PDF First!!.
  6. VK Shires- for non rovers. Please read PDF file for installation.
  7. ZL Memorial - New 5/7/2018 - under test feedback appreciated.

User difficulty = Read attached PDF's where applicable.

N1MM is fairly complex, and if you have never used it before then RTFM. (Read Quick start guide).
One must set N1MM up correctly and have the latest version of N1MM Plus for the UDC's to work correctly.
Do not modify the files in anyway, including their file name.
