I have been away from this site for a long time. I am back :-)
I would like to participate in the upcoming "Deutscher Telegrafie-Contest" (AGCW) on Friday, 3.10.2014 (Tag der deutschen Einheit). The logging format is simple, but strange:
UTC, Call, RST+LDK_TX, RST+LDK_RX, no number!
LDK = Kfz-Kennzeichen
http://www.agcw.de/index.php/de/contest ... ie-contest

A variant is used at the "Nordsee-Aktivitätstag":
UTC, Call, RST, Name + LDK + DOK, no number!
http://www.darc.de/referate/dx/contest/ ... itaetstag/

I tried to find a similar contest in RUMpeds list, but no luck.
Anybody?

Creating a plugin for the AGCW DTC was easy with ContestMaker, but I have no idea how to realize a plugin for the Nordsee-Aktivitätstag.
I realized that 2m and 70cm is still unsupported in RUMped.

Please note: In AGCW DTC each QSO counts as 1 point, but QSOs with one of the sponsoring club counts as 2 points. Please check the rules and correct your final score manually!

I am working with the California QSO Party plugin and having a problem.

First, it logs the report "599 of 59" but that is not a part of the CQP exchange. I can overcome this by editing the final log before I submit it.

A little more difficult problem I am having is as an in California contestant we don't get multiplier credit for CA counties but this plug in seems to use add them in.

I wonder if anyone has played with this plugin for this weekend's contest.

TIA

Please try the attached plug in. I removed the Ca Counties from the multi list. I haven't test it!
Never heard, you don't have to send rst. This will be logged always, but you can edit the output Cabrillo file using a simple text editor and use "find and replace all" "599" to " "

RUMped is not good for this kind of rules.

Make sure, you are using th latest version of RUMped: http://dl2rum.de/rumsoft/RUMpedApp.zip

Tom,

I think that has it!

Thanks, now I will update K6OQ also and we will be ready for tomorrow.

I always enjoy showing the local contest club that there is a very good contest logger available for the Mac.
