    *1    Ukrainian DX Contest + Ukrainian SSTV Contest
    *2    Enter the whole exchange number ("PO001" or "PO  001")  into ExchRcv field
    *3    CW+SSB+RTTY. Enter received serial number into ExchRcv field and domain/state/province into Domain field of the log (i.e. domains are not auto-grabbed).
WARNING: MixW versions prior to 2.04 contain bug in Cabrillo export for North American Sprint (but all other functions work).
    *4    No Cabrillo log generation. Please use "to Text" button to produce to export the log into text format.
    *5    Please go to http://www.sk3bg.se/contest/cqwwwpx.htm to see how to fill the Cabrillo file header for WPX contest.
    *6    Enter both received serial number and CQ zone number into ExchRcv field (like "001 16"). Set your own CQ zone via View - Statistics - Settings menu (while in contest mode).
    *7    Enter both received CQ zone and time into ExchRcv field (like "16 1921"). Set your own CQ zone via View - Statistics - Settings menu (while in contest mode).
    *8   To set up MixW 2 for the WAE RTTY contest:
1) Delete existing QTCTX.log and QTCRX.log files from MixW directory (if needed).
2) Set up contest mode with StatsWAE.dll.

To record QTCs from the other station, enter its callsign in the WAE dialog, then select QTCs in RX window, right-click the selection and choose "Add to statistics" from the menu.

To send QTCs, enter the other station's callsign in the WAE dialog, then press/click a button with <STATS:GENERATEQTC> macro. Use <STATS:REPEATQTC> macro to repeat the last QTCs.

To generate logfiles, go to File - Search in logfile menu. Then select the WAE contest from the drop-down menu and click Display. Select all found QSOs and click "to Cabrillo" button. Answer "Yes" when the program suggests generating logfiles in WAE format.

Then you will get the following files:

WaeRtty.sum - summary sheet.
WaeRtty.all - all contacts in chronological order.
WaeRttyXXm.txt - contacts for band XX.
QTCTX.log and QTCRX.log - QTCs.

Jim Jaffe's (WA2VOS) collection of contest DLLs:
The samples of Nick's ( UT2UZ) macros for some contests are here.


Contests settings:

- List of contests dialog has been moved to View -Contest mode menu.

- Double-click sets the selected line active. To deactivate a contest, choose "No contest".

- Added CQ zone auto suggestion. See the Contest Settings dialog.
CQ zone is automatically entered into the received number field when you enter a new callsign. For countries with more than one CQ zone (USA, etc.) it also shows '?' mark after the zone number, which means that this value will be rewritten with the Auto Grabber with the actual zone number.

- Log Statistics dialog has been moved to View - Statistics - Brief log statistics menu.

- Added statistics filters for displaying contest statistics on-the-fly.

In Contest Settings dialog, click the "Statistics:
[...]" button and choose a statistics filter. Then, click View - Statistics - Show contest statistics menu to display the statistics window.

Contest filters are actually DLL files that are located in Plugins subdirectory in MixW directory.

- To automatically generate Cabrillo contesting log for a given contest, Run "Search in Logfile" dialog (File - Search in logfile menu).
Uncheck all check-boxes except "Contest". Choose a contest from the list. Click Display button. In the search results dialog, select the lines you want to export (right mouse click for additional options), then
press "To Cabrillo" button.

After viewing the contest statistics, fill the required fields and press OK.
