NAQCC SPRINT LOG SUBMISSION FORM

TEST MODE: Nothing entered here will be recorded in sprint records, though we do record all inputs for debugging purposes. Feel free to experiment.
NAQCC Autologger, version 2, February 2021. Consult the sprint rules if you need more guidance than offered below. Andy, N2CN, maintains the autologger; email him with problems, questions, or comments at pix_newemail_n2cn (1K)

Enter 0 if you are not a member.
If you operated an N3A station, use the 10000-series number assigned to that call.
Call
The call that you used in this sprint.
Email Address
State/Province
QTH from which you operated during the sprint. Use "DX" if not US or Canada.

If you used both, choose Gain.
Antenna description(s) & height(s)

Transmitted, but logged no QSOs
If you called CQ and/or called other sprint participants, but you did not complete a QSO, then check this box. You will appear on the results page with a zero score.
You must either check this box, or submit a log, but not both.
Transmitted, but logged no QSOs
Log (optional)

If you made QSOs, you must copy a log into the box to the right.

The log should consist of one line per QSO containing 5, 6, or 8 fields as described below:

  1. (Optional) Your Call.
  2. Band. 80, 40, 20 (or 160 for a 160m sprint). Just the number; no M, meters, etc.
  3. Time in UTC. Should be in the range of 0030-0230 or 0130-0330 depending on time of year. Just four digits, with a leading zero, e.g. 0028, 0131, 0246, etc.
  4. Station Worked.
  5. Worked station's 2-letter state or province abbreviation, or "DX".
  6. Worked station's NAQCC number, or for a non-member, power followed by W, e.g. 5W.
  7. (Optional, and ignored if present) New Multiplier (number each new state, province, country consecutively, or - if not new).
  8. (Optional, and ignored if present) Points (2 for a member, 1 for a non-member).
GenLog generates the full 8-field log lines.

Please, no column headers, no comments, no RST, no totals or sums. Just the log lines as described here. The columns do not need to be lined up, just separated by one or more spaces.

Soapbox (optional)
Tell everyone about your sprint, the static crashes, the multiplier that got away, the OM that patiently sent his number four times until you got a solid copy, etc.
Message to NAQCC Scorer (optional)
An optional private message to the NAQCC scorer, e.g. "I was using a callsign that I don't usually use," or "I'm not sure my QSO with so-and-so was completed," or "I made a mistake in my last submission, use this one instead." These are permanently stored in our database, but are not visible to members. They can be deleted on request.
