For SWL is recommended Marek SP7DQR program downloadable at http://www.sp7dqr.pl/zawody.php#swl_dqr_log
The paper logs NO LONGER 'ACCEPTED.

Two words on the log.
What about the preparation for the contest, which often begins days, or even weeks before? how much effort, time, efforts to obtain the best possible result in view of those 24 hours when we play what has been done so far?
Have you ever wondered when the contest ends? Simple, of network. The 13z Sunday, After all that effort!
It really is not so: contest, and your commitment, It ends when you send the log. Until then you are in fact out of the rankings.
The log is the "signature" final, Your business card, your tone with which validated all the hard work done before and during the contest. It would be a shame to nullify, no?
Unfortunately,, instead, the perception by some towards the compilation and submission of the log is almost discomfort. And we realize it would punctually, since shortly after the end of the Contest, when we start to receive the logs in the formats and with disparate blunders.
Using software suggested by committee, the problems are minimized, provided you properly fill out your personal data, specific ones of the contest in the initial screen, and send the correct file.
Coprendiamo it is not right to force to use a certain software, why everyone is free to use software that wants, as long as the log sent to us respecting the required format.
So far we have turned a blind eye, rather, both, correcting us, When possible, problems.
In our contest, as organizers, we make tremendous efforts to carefully check the logs and to provide the results in the shortest time possible. From now on, we expect increased awareness and cooperation from all participants, and who will not send the log in the required format and / or errors, if you will send back the request for correction.
The Cabrillo format
Cabrillo ... that weird name!
Its origins go back several years ago ', and must be sought in the US when Trey N5KO one day he invented, with the collaboration of other OM,
a "universal" format that was adaptable in a simple way in all the contest.
In fact, today the Cabrillo became the standard reference format, required by all HF contest in the world.
It is a normal text file, then read with the simple Notepad (Notepad) di Windows, even if the requested extension is
conventionally .log
The structure of the Cabrillo is well defined, then it MUST be respected in its specific, no fanciful changes or additions by
the participant, otherwise the non-recognition of the format to the organizers and to process it impossiblità.
The software for the management of the contest create the Cabrillo log in the correct format and ready to send, whereby in 99% of cases, the log needs to be
left as is and shipped.
For the curious, and for those who do not use a software that can generate the Cabrillo specific for a particular contest, the file is written in
clear. It is therefore not necessary to be software engineers to understand what's written inside.
Although the maximum structure is the same for any contest, each one has slight differences, because of the different and catatteristiche
Regulation of each contest.
The Cabrillo consists of two parts. Here is a detailed both, using as an example a log in correct Cabrillo format to the Basse CQ Bande

It's easy, already at first sight, understand the meaning of the data of both sections, but we insist that the property MUST be this,
and NOT can be changed at will, removing or adding parts, such as indicating the double or multipliers: these,
in fact, They are always checked and recalculated by the Contest Committee of each contest, and should not be typed.
We hope that this explanation may be helpful to better understand the importance of a make compilation of log.
Just very little effort to help us tremendously!
