ARRL DX Exchange Question

Almost all DX stations are sending cut numbers or shorthand (KW) for their power. I’ve just been entering the literal exchange (5TT, etc). Do I need to convert these to the actual digits before submitting my Cabrillo file?

  1. Charlie: Maybe someone has a better answer, but to the best of my knowledge, it doesn’t matter how you enter the cut numbers. I usually enter just “K” for anyone sending either KW or K. “100” for anyone sending ATT or 1TT. 500 (I stations) for 5TT. 400 (G UK stations) 4TT. Etc. Certainly don’t go thru your log and convert cut numbers to real numbers.

    But the greatest news is: “He’s B A A A A C K ! ! ” Rick, KI1G, so far has the top score for SO Unlim at 6 million + points beating the top echelon so far. Nice going Rick. And a CTRI score to boot !

    Looks like RI was out in full abundance.

  2. Hi Charlie,
    that’s my memory too. I think the point is to communicate one’s power level. So ATT and 100 communicate the same thing.
