1) I don' t know how to have the multipliers work on each band. I clicked the "multipliers count on multiple bands", but no dice...

You have to select both options: "Multipliers count separate on each band" and "Multipliers count separate in each mode"


2) The contest is valid on 2M although I do not play there, and I don't know many that do.


2m and up is not supported, except for the IARU Region 1 VHF contest


3) Last is that there are certain stations that are higher points (i.e. the RAC sponsored stations). I didn't see a way to have specific callsigns be worth *more* than usual.


There is no way yet to assign special call signs different points, I have to add this in the future. Currently I haven't this time.


Nevertheless you should be able to run this contest, scoring is not correct but very close and you can correct it yourself. Scoring is not part of the transmitted log.

Done - working well. This was the biggest problem.

Fair enough. I don't SSB/CW on 2m, there must be some of them though... :-)

All said - thanks for this contest-Macintosh program!

I like to do short contests. I just checked if there is a contest definition file for the upcoming DARC 10m Contest. I have not found one in RUMped. The rules look very similar to WAG, but are in fact slightly different (multiplier):

Anybody?

A multiplier list is not provided. Please note, "NM" will not count as DOK!

Now version 2.1, useful for 2013!

Here is is. Only PSK31 is supported! When you operate other PSK modes, you have to edit your Cabrillo file manually.
Please test the plugin before the contest starts. :o

Can I do to be reflected in the log speed PSK? For example: BPSK31, BPSK63, BPSK125 now, regardless of speed PSK, written BPSK :roll: . At the Cabrillo file can then be corrected in accordance with the terms of the competition despite the log.

You can only add a note to the QSO, not very user friendly. It seems I have to add more modes. But no spare time yet .....
