JIDX Contest and the N1MM Logger
I worked on the JIDX contest since yestrday, they recommenced to use the N1MM logger for this contest which I have down loaded and installed on my computer but each time I try to open it it give me " Error Opening Data Base"
I did sharp 100 qso on this contest with Japan's stations most on 21MHZ ( 15 Meter ), I wrote them all on paper log as my log is not designed to contest, as I failed to open the N1MM logger , does that mean all of my contacts for this contest are wasted ?
If not what should I do with these contacts from here, do I keep them in my log, or just tear off those paper and forget about the contest and why should the N1MM logger do not open on my computer?
Thank you and 73 to every one
Keep them in your log. They are valid contacts. If you receive QSL requests, you can confirm them. Contest loggers like N1MM simply make it easier to submit your entries to the contest sponsors. However most contests will allow you to enter a paper record. They generally require that they be copied to a special form rather than just photocopying your log page.
I don't know why you had problems with N1MM. Have you used it before? In general, you have to create a new contest log before you can open it for the first time: File-->New Log in Database.
Thank you my friend, I never usd this logger before, using it for the first time, I do not know how to do the Log in Database ?, the thing you have mentioned here, please, if you can help me with it so I can enter my contacts as they reached now, 156 qso with Ja station for this contest.
