What's LM?
LM is a program to edit contest logs afterwards; a so-called “contest post processor”. With help of LM the user shall be able to convert his “raw data” to an up-to-date electronic log in a comfortable way and with as less effort as possible. What does it mean: “raw data”? This can be data

  • of other contest programs
  • from text files
  • from paper logs
LM provides conversion routines to read
  • Cabrillo files
  • STF files
  • ADIF files
  • binary files of established contest programs (e.g. CT, NA, QW)
  • any ASCII text file

Furthermore, LM contains an integrated log editor to type in paper logs or to edit the log ex post. Supported by a special input-turbo (“Fast append mode”) the input effort will be reduced to a minimum. In addition, LM tries to take over as much work as possible. LM “knows” states, provinces, member-numbers etc. for the supported 83 contests and recommends expedient values automatically.

All this makes LM interesting for a wide range of users. For the contester that wants to convert his small paper log fast and comfortable in a standardized electronic log as well as for the contest manager who is confronted with a lot of binary and text file formats and needs to convert them to a standard format as fast as possible.

Another advantage of LM is that beside the big international contests primarily smaller European contests are supported.

For further information, make use of the LM help system which is available as a web version.
