N1MM LOGGER - User Defined VK Contests

UDC's now relocated to the N1MM UDC page under the Contest heading.

New VK Contest log checker is a huge success!

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, QRP Hours 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
https://www.vklogchecker.com

N1MM Logger UDC's by VK4SN, and VKCL Logger by VK3AVV and RD Logger by VK5DJ
now output required logs in Cabrillo V3.0

CQWW CW 2018 - Here's some audio from the contest

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:
