Many thanks to Dave, AA6YQ, for adding CQP Cabrillo export to DXKeeper so quickly after my request on the DXLab Yahoo Group! New site Note that as with all state QSO parties, DXKeeper requires that you input both parts of a received exchange into the "rx#" field. DXKeeper is usually able to parse the two pieces even if you don't put a space between them. "rx #" is the only choice in the Capture windows and in Winwarbler anyway, but there is an "rx info" field in the main DXKeeper window. In this case, don't use "rx info". See note 2 in the DXLab Contesting instructions. New site

The CQP Committee confirms that the DXKeeper export will be accepted by the CQP robot. Apparently any submission in a Cabrillo format close enough to the above templates will be accepted, but this one is guaranteed. I am not a member of the NCCC, and I am not involved with running the CQP, but feel free to contact me with any comments or suggestions.

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat." — Albert Einstein
