Submit Logs

Logs from the event can be submitted one of three ways. Preferred is by using the form on this page to upload your Cabrillo-formatted log files, named <CALLSIGN>.log

You can also email your Cabrillo file named <CALLSIGN>.log to logs@flspota.org, with the subject <CALLSIGN>

The last, and least-preferred method is to mail a CD with your Cabrillo logfile named <CALLSIGN>.log to KK4FEM. Must be postmarked no later than 14 days after the event.

Entrants who use paper logging, or whose logging software does not support the Cabrillo format may use the free LM Logging software from http://www.contestsoftware.com/e/home.htm  to convert their logs to Cabrillo before submitting.

The log submission form will be updated on this page before the contest date.

Supported logging software includes:

SD by Paul O’Kane, EI5DI – http://www.ei5di.com/

Paul has graciously provided for FLSPOTA contest participants to use his software for free during the contest. Both sides (within, and outside, state parks) are supported with a single template. In-park Florida stations enter their 3-digit park code at startup, all others enter their 2-digit state, province, or “DX” code. The QSO Rate window has been disabled to permit the continuous display of park codes worked and wanted (171 of them). This contest option is free and unrestricted for all users – with or without a registration key file (ignore any “DEMO” warnings).

Note: Be aware that if you work a station that is operating with the same callsign from more than one park entity during the contest, you will need to add /R or /M (rover or mobile) to that callsign when logging, to avoid the record being marked as a duplicate.

You can download the latest version at http://www.ei5di.com/.
