Contest Logging Programs.
designed for the Virginia QSO Party always help. We accept
any logs, but logs submitted electronically and compliant
with any cabrillo format are preferred. The following
logging programs have been used in the past and they have
been modified to support the Virginia QSO Party. We
re-score all logs submitted, so it is important to ensure
your log contains all the required information.
* N1MM Logger http://www.n1mm.com
* Scott & Kimberly, N3FJP &
KA3SEQ Amateur Contact Log http://www.n3fjp.com

Virginia Counties and Independent Cities
: 95 counties
and 38 independent cities (html format
or MS Document
). Dave, W4DUK, advised us that "on
1 July 2013, the City of Bedford
reverted to a town
and became part of Bedford County
, so the new Town
of Bedford is no longer an Independent City."
Therefore the number of multipliers in the 2014 Virginia QSO
Party will be 133, not 134 as in previous Parties.
