N1MM Logger+ DKC User Defined Contest file

 

By Thomas Tinge, PA1M
With many thanks to Nick, NA3M to add several new options especially for the DKARS contest.

 

How to add and use the DKARS.UDC file for N1MM logger +

 

Download the latest version of the DKC.UDC file from the N1MM Logger+ website. It can be found at: http://n1mm.hamdocs.com/tiki-index.php go to ‘Files’, then ‘User Defined Contest (UDC)’.
Of course you can also download it from the DKARS website. Unzip the DKC-2016.zip file and you will get two files.


Place the DKC.UDC file in the folder:
C:\Users\<username>\Documents\N1MM Log-ger+\UserDefinedContests\

 

Place the DKCExpats.txt file in the folder:
C:\Users\<username>\Documents\N1MM Log-ger+\SupportFiles\

 

NB. Please be aware that a comma should stand behind every call, even after the last one!

 

Start N1MM logger+ and select as contest: DKC


The Available window and the Bandmaps will show/colour each new DXCC as a multiplier (DKARS rules: Multipliers section: D and E). However, the European Dutch country identifier (PA, PB, PC, PD, PE, PF, PG, PH and PI) are not explicitly shown. (DKARS rules: Multipliers Section: F).

 

Scoring: the points per qso are determined for most instances. Only the 5 points for a ?P station in a DKARS country will not be added. The calculated score will be due to this and the unknown expats a bit too low. Additional multiplier points will be added and shown in the log window after the NEXT qso is entered or after a Rescore.


NB. Minimal N1MM Logger+ Version 1.0.4893.0 (from May 10, 2015) or a later version is needed to use the DKARS.UDC file!
