    One of my club members told me a few days ago that if I was planning on using N1MM Logger for Winter Field Day I'd need to download a file of some kind and add it to N1MM. He couldn't remember the details, but that has caused me to question my preparedness for Saturday.

    I have downloaded the latest N1MM Logger update file, and I've also downloaded a new "WL_CTY.DAT" file, as well as a SCP_VER20200102.ZIP, both due to reading a "how to" document that I found online. Can anyone shed some light on my concerns? What do I need to do to make sure that N1MM Logger+ is ready to use Saturday?

    Did you download the WFDA.ZIP file from the User Defined Contests section of the downloads page?
    When you unzip it you will see a WFDA_Read-Me.txt file that contains instructions on where to place the files and how to use them.

    WFDA2RTTY.udc place in Usersarea\My Documents\N1MM Logger+\UserDefinedContests

    WinterFD.sec place in Usersarea\My Documents\N1MM Logger+\SupportFiles

    When setting up, click>Import Section List

    After producing the Cabrillo file, use 'Find and Replace' to change 'RY' to 'DI' in Cabrillo file -
    (use leading and trailing spaces to avoid changing any callsigns).

    Tried following those instructions, but couldn't find anything that said "Import Sections List".
    The choices under Import were:
    ---Import ADIF from file
    ---Import call history
    ---Import state & province abbreviations
    ---Recover QSO from a transaction log.

    I clicked on "Import state & province abbreviations" and saw a results message: "Import Complete"

    But when I try entering sample contacts with standard section abbreviations, the program returns "Missing/Invalid Section"

    Never mind!

    I was looking in the wrong place.

    Import Sections List is a "button" that I had overlooked in the contest set-up screen.
    I was looking for it in the "Files-->Import" pull-down menu.
