Cabrillo Report

Fldigi can generate a basic Cabrillo report that meets most contest needs.

Selecting the "File/Log/Cabrillo report" menu item opens the following dialog:

If you want to export every record press the "Check All" in the left panel.

Select the Contest type from the pull down menu in the right panel. Fldigi knows how to format the various fields for each contest. When satisfied with the setup press OK. You will then have the opportunity to specify the location and name of the cabrillo output file.

If you use the Contest - How To <XBEG>...<XEND> to capture your outgoing exchange, OR if you choose to capture all received exchange information in the "Exch" field on the Logbook panel then you should be careful not to duplicate the data in the Caprillo report. For example:

You captured outgoing exchange data as <XBEG><RST> <CNTR><XEND>. Do not enable the "RST sent" and "Serial # out" check boxes as this info is already contained in the "Exchange in" field.

You captured incoming exchange data into the Exch field as RST SER# TIME. Do not enable the "RST rcvd" or the "Serial # in" check boxes.

You must then open the file with a plain text editor and modify the appropriate entries. Check with each contest sponsor to see what their requirements are.

Here is an example of a generated cabrillo report format before being edited:
