Contests Supported by CBR2ADIF

The reference number (e.g. (1)) after some contest names indicates the existence of an official or semi-official Cabrillo specification, either at the Cabrillo website (1) or at the contest sponsor's website. Contest names not marked with a reference are supported by CBR2ADIF making "reasonable" assumptions about the Cabrillo format for those contests (in most cases, the same assumptions as those that are made by the WT4I Cabrillo Converter).

Files from contests not on the above list may be translated as follows:

  1. Make a copy of the Cabrillo file and, using a text editor, change the contest name to one of those in the above list. Choose a supported contest with an identical exchange, or as similar an exchange as possible. If there is no contest name in the Cabrillo file, add a line to the header containing "CONTEST:name" where "name" is on the list.
  2. Use CBR2ADIF to translate the modified file to ADIF.
  3. Using a text editor, edit all occurrences of "<contest_id:n>contest-name" in the ADIF file so they contain the desired contest name ("n" is the number of characters in the name). Alternatively, you may simply delete this field entirely if you do not wish to use the contest name in the ADIF file.
If you have a Cabrillo file for a contest whose exchange cannot be represented by any of the supported contests, e-mail me with information about the contest exchange and I will try to support it in the next version of the program.
