IARU Region 1 VHF/UHF Contests
Children`s Contest    Easter Contest
March Contest VHF

Stations send RST and QSO serial number, plus 6-digit grid locator (required to calculate QSO points based on the distance in kM).

Enter your 6-digit locator in the set-up screen.
You may enter the other station`s 6-digit grid at any time. The distance, QSO points and beam heading will be displayed.

1 point for each kilometer of distance. Same locator as your own = 1 point. Score = total distance points.

EDI file required:
An EDI formatted file is required for log submissions when participating in Region 1 VHF/UHF contests. Use the `IARU R1 VHF/UHF Contest` option for other R1 VHF contests having the same exchange and scoring as indicated above. After the contest, edit the `TName` field of your EDI file before submission. You can also edit fields that do not have values from GenLog`s setup screen - station data and comments. Access to the Log Write EDI file menu is limited to this contest (option 147).

MAKE_EDI is a stand-alone Windows application that converts GenLog R1 VHF log files to EDI format.

Partial Callsign search:
As described in the Partial Search topic, WWL (grid squares) will also be displayed along with the callsign if you make search datafiles that include 4 or 6-digit locators. Click the callsign in the right-hand window, then click the grid locator to insert them into the appropriate fields.

Data file search
An older method of WW locator lookup uses a datafile created for use with my VHFLOG contest logger. New versions of GenLog use [vhf4k.adi] for lookup. If the call exists in the data file, the locator is automatically <Entered> by the logger and the distance, QSO points and beam heading are displayed.
