Re: RTTY RU Worked Before Problem - Fault Found

Without checking the N3FJP software ... it *should* record the QSO with
the mode that was used on the air and *export* FT4/FT8 QSOs as DG for
the Cabrillo file. ADIF exports should use <MODE:3>FT8 for FT8 and
<MODE:4>MFSK<SUBMODE:3>FT4 for LotW. In any case the log should have
the correct mode *NOT* DG/RY.

Will Cabrillo convert an FT4 to DG from a log that logged a QSO as FT4? If so, that's were I went wrong because I used the option in N3FJP'S RTTY RU to log contacts as DG immediately in the log during the contest.

FYI, I can note for you that the RU contest
Cabrillo file submission wants RY for RTTY
contacts and DG for all other digital contacts.
2.4 In the Cabrillo formatted log, RTTY contacts use RY and
all other digital modes use the DG
mode abbreviations.
I don't know if these get put into the ADIF log file,
but that's basically where the DG comes from.
