7QP Cabrillo Format

The preferred format for 7QP logs is Cabrillo V3.0 or V2.    N5KO's full description of the specifications is available here.

In the summary section, the LOCATION: tag (ARRL-SECTION: in V2) should contain the 7QP location code(s).

Use the "other ARRL and CQ contests, .." QSO template from the "QSO templates" page on the above website.

END-OF-LOG:
Note that N7LE made two QSOs here; each appears twice since N7LE was a county expedition on the ORDES-ORJEF county line.    K7UGA/m was also on a county line, doubling the lines for that QSO to four.

We also allow a non-standard QSO variant: space-delimited free-form fields beginning with the station callsign, with multiple location codes permitted. The above log can be shortened to:

QSO:  3500 CW 2007-05-05 1314 N7LE 599 ORDES/JEF  W1AW    599 CT
QSO:  3500 CW 2007-05-05 1315 N7LE 599 ORDES/JEF  K7UGA/m 599 AZYVP/MCP
Multiple location codes for worked stations can be entered as one or more words, e.g.   "AZYVP/MCP" or "AZYVP AZMCP".
