SMC Member file available

1/19/2015 – Anthony, AB9YC, created a member file that can be used with your contesting software. If you are running N1MM+, you can select this file and the regular history file for your contest and they will combine. You can export a new history file and they will be combined and used later.

Once the contest starts and any SMC member calls you, SMC Member will show on the screen and show their name and state.

Link to file…  SMC Member File

I will also add this to the Resources tab. It will be updated from time to time. We also may add other useful files.

“It was a nice surprise to open the mailbox and get the plaque for Zone 4 in the CQ WPX phone contest!
