51st Scandinavian Activity Contest - Log submission and result processing
Submitted by: ON5EX
Log submission and result processing for the 51st SAC (CW 19-20 Sept. , SSB 26-27 Sept.) will be a lot easier than before. SM3CER, Jan and SM7LQV, Lars created a Log Processing Robot, that not only will be able to automatically receive all logs, but also to present a continuously updated Claimed Scores List, that will grow upon the receipt of all logs. The speed of checking logs will be highly increased and final results will be ready much earlier. Subsequently, the deliveries of Awards and Plaques will go much faster. Please find the UPLOAD CONTEST LOG button in the upper right corner of the new official Scandinavian Activity Contest site, when you feel ready to submit your Cabrillo log.
