I already said in my other post that the EU-HF contest does NOT require a serial number and you should use a fixed string

You should send 17 because that's the last two digits of the year you were first licenced

You should enter the two numbers received from the other station like 80 or 89 or 49 only

The RST you record in the RST fields not the contest fields

There could also be an issue with the ADIF to cabrilio converter, why not use N1MM contest logger or similar which will create the Cabrlio file locally and then import the N1MM ADIF into Log4om?

Hello Terry,

Sorry for the delay in replying, I've been away for a few days.

The issue has now been resolved. I went through a process of elimination and suspected an issue with a 3rd Party ADIF to Cabrillo Converter Program. The author was co-operative and has revised his code. Graham has used Lo4OM in a couple of recent Contests and used the ADIF to Cabrillo Conversion with good results.

Thank you for letting us know the outcome David, many do not :x

If you recall I suggested that the ADIF to Cabrillo converter could be the issue and I am pleased that the author of that program was eventually approached for assistance.

At first I thought I'd sorted the issue (Configuration Setting) but subsequently found issues with other Contests. This was subsequently traced to the Converter Program itself. Anyway, everyone's happy with the outcome that's the main thing.
