2017 OMISS QSO Party

The 2017 OMISS QSOP Submitted logs may be viewed by clicking the Link in the left sidebar.

Electronic Submission Guidelines

It is highly recommended that you submit your log information as an ADIF file. Your logging program should be able to export your contacts in the ADIF format. (If you are using GenLog, use the 3rd link on the left to convert a GenLog ascii output file to an ADIF file.)

Once you have your ADIF file exported, you can use the 1st link on the left to pre-check your log. The log checker will calculate most of the information needed to complete the Summary Sheet.

Once you have checked/corrected your log you can upload the Log and the Summary Sheet using the 2nd link on the left.

Your entry is not complete until both a summary sheet and a log are submitted -- either elecronically or via US Mail. Incomplete submissions will be rejected and must be resubmitted before the deadline.

Entries must be uploaded or postmarked no later than March 1, 2017. Late entries will not be accepted.
