VK Contest log checker is a huge success!

In conjunction with DotEukali and Alan Shannon Computers & Cabling, we have developed a website to ease the load for contest managers.
For five years we have supported the Remembrance Day, Trans Tasman, QRP Hours and the Harry Angel contest.
In 2022 we start the year adding the Australia Day, VK Shires, and CQ Pride Contests.
Automated cross checking, duplicates, unique calls and busted calls are checked. After the log upload cutoff date,
the results are finalised and results are displayed as is statistics for the contest.
Logs are required to be in Cabrillo Version 3 format and can be uploaded at https://www.vklogchecker.com

** Updates include API automatic one click log upload from VKCL Logger **

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:
