Hello all Radiosport friends!
Here comes some hopefully interesting Last Minute News concerning the 51st Scandinavian Activity
We have the great pleasure to announce that Log Submission and Result Processing will be a lot easier
than before. SM3CER, Jan and SM7LQV, Lars have performed a heroic work the last month to create a
Log Processing Robot, that not only will be able to automatically receive all logs, but also to present a
continuously updated Claimed Scores List, that will grow upon the receipt of all logs.
The robot will also be very useful for crosschecking of log entries. The speed of checking logs will be
highly increased, and following the reduction of this work compared to previous years, we can also
assure that the Final Results will be ready much earlier. Subsequently the deliveries of Awards and
Plaques will go much faster.
The new official Scandinavian Activity Contest site will be www.sactest.net
Please find the UPLOAD CONTEST LOG button in the upper right corner of the page, when you feel
ready to submit your Cabrillo log.
NOTE! The robot is under the final stages of adjustment, so until SAC CW starts at 1200 hours UTC on
Saturday, September the 19th, you might see some development work going on. Many pages are not
ready yet, but will be filled with information as soon as possible. Please be patient...
We hope that this contest will be interesting and challenging for you - and that you will have a chance
to work many Scandinavians!
Also do not forget the SSB part taking place the weekend after the CW, namely on September 26th-
27th between 1200-1200 UTC
Please inform your contest friends, local club members and possible International/National/Regional
Forums about this unique Log Processing Robot.
It would be great if a lot of stations would sign up on this list before the contest!
