Re: Is it possible/acceptable to use EU VHF Contest mode for other contests?

Hi,

The serial number is incremented automatically. It start with the number of records that are already in the contest log. It you clear the contest log at the beginning of the contest iit will start with One (1). It then increments it as it logs the QSOs

Subject: [WSJTX] Is it possible/acceptable to use EU VHF Contest mode for other contests?

I see that the EU VHF Contest mode in WSJTx has two very interesting differences to normal operation,
1. the ability to send and receive a serial number and
2. the conversion from dB values into RST.

I'm not interested in the second, but am in the first.

Does WSJTx maintain a contact sequence number for every contact and increment it automatically?

I can't seem to find where this happens - perhaps it's automatic and I don't have to worry about it?

Also, I would be interested to know where in WSJTx the control of what is taken from the Adif log to create the Cabrillo one is defined as I see in the Adi file fields that are not transferred to the Cabrillo file which I require.
