Welcome to the official web site of CQ World Wide VHF Contest.
North American Stations Not Operating From The Home QTH
If you are not ROVER nor HILLTOPPER please use the ARRL-SECTION line in the Cabrillo format to put the state (preferably) or US call area you operated from (since using QRA locators to determine this can be ambiguous in some cases). If the address in the Cabrillo ADDRESS lines reflects the operating QTH, you can ignore this request.
You can view the list of received logs here. If you have submitted a log that the robot recognizes you will receive a receipt from it. You will only be able to see your call in the list of received logs if you have received a receipt. If you can't see your callsign in the list and haven't received a receipt, then try submitting to the robot again (after checking for errors). Note that in the days immediately following the contest, processing may take a while with the large number of simultaneous submissions.
Log Submission Checklist
Make sure that your log conforms to the standard Cabrillo format, in particular the following requirements to avoid having the robot bounce your log:
- The first line begins with START-OF-LOG:
- There is a CALLSIGN: line.
- There is a NAME: line with only one name even for multi operator entries.
- There are ADDRESS: lines with a correct postal address (so we can send you a certificate if you win one). There should only be one address even for multi operator entries.
- There are QSO: lines (yes, really).
- BAND should be ALL, 144, 50, 6M or 2M
- Do not put in RST's - the VHF report is only your grid square
- The last line contains only END-OF-LOG:
Most recent version logging programs conform to the Cabrillo format, but check your version!
