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

Hi Bill and Ed,
During my testing for the visually impaired, I never focused on the spin edit box which indeed starts up with a value of one (1). However, the 4 digit sequence number following the signal report was always based on the number of records in the contest log which I did not clear between contests as I tested them. In any event in my haste in answering Ed, I was remis in mentioning the leading 2 digit signal report that is derived from the SNR value.
Here is the translation that I use in QLog to translate the SNR to RST, of course it only used the leading 2 digits
-999..-19 -> Result := 529;
-18..-13 -> Result := 539;
-12..-07 -> Result := 549;
-06..-01 -> Result := 559;
0..5 -> Result := 569;
6..11 -> Result := 579;
12..17 -> Result := 589;
>17 -> Result := 599;
That seems to work as it corresponds to what WSJT-X sends out.

Hi Sam and Ed,
that is not quite correct. The Tx contest serial number starts at one and is reset to one when the Contest Log is cleared ("Menu->File->Reset Cabrillo Log"). It is incremented by one after each successful QSO is logged. The user may change the serial number at any time using the spin box control labelled "Tx#". The current value of the Tx serial number is persisted between sessions.
