    I was having a heck of a time trying to find the cabrillo format for the very recent IARU-HF contest.  I could find:

    I wasn’t anxious to enter the data in one QSO at a time with this web page:

    but I started anyway, and typed the information about myself and my station on the 1st page.  The second page answered the question, all it had was a giant text box to enter the data in:

    Enter your QSO data in this text area, one QSO per line. Each of the fields below must be entered for each QSO. One or more spaces must separate each item in a QSO. All dates and times must be in UTC. If you didn't record the exact time of a QSO, estimate it the best you can.
    --------------------------------------------------
    Band Date Time Call-Copied RST-Copied Zone-Copied
    20 7/9 1200 n7wa 599 06
    --------------------------------------------------
    <-Enter your QSO data starting on the next line. Do not erase this line.->

    So I entered some test data and got this:

    QSO: 14000 PH 2016-07-09 1200 W1AKI 59 8 N7WA 599 08

    There’s not much to it!

    I know that a great logging program would have this already built in… I’m working on that. 🙂

    There are many PC logger programs (freeware to $$$) which can do this task.  For mobile HF, I just started using Aether for Mac, since I only take Apple devices on the road. Aether supports most contest formats including uploading cabrillo files.  At QTH, I can upload ADIF files to my HRD software, if I choose.  Aether is easy and has many features; alas, it does not have super check partial support.
