ARRL VUCC Award

Post by N5FPW » 17 Jun 2020, 14:57

I'm sorry if I missed this but I did not see the ARRL VUCC on the award list. Has anyone configured this award in their logbook that can provide some guidance now that the VHF/UHF e-skip season is open and I would like to track same? Also if there is no VUCC and again I didn't see it can the Log4OM team add it/

Thanks for the time and your help. This program is looking better by the moment as I set it up.

I was looking for this as well. I have been having to export my log into HRD logbook so I can check my grid squares. Would be really nice if Log4OM would add the VUCC award.

You can add it yourself and share it with other users if you can obtain a list of the eligible grid locators

I came across this thread while searching for the same information.

VUCC doesn't have "eligible" grids the way DXCC has eligible entities. It's a per-band award based on reaching milestones such as any 100 grids.

I hope I haven't misunderstood the discussion

Thought it was the same as fred Fish and the squares had to be in the USA so that makes it even easier for you to make the award if you dont require a grid list.

I wish I found it easy, but unfortunately that isn't the case at all. I'm really having a problem transferring what I read in the Award Editor section of the manual into what I need. Reference codes and fields really have me against a wall.

I'm using the one dated 2/8/2020, where the Award Editor section begins on page 122. Page 127 is where I start going off the rails.
