creating a cabrillo log file on my ipad


Dr Jim Kennedy
 

I have an ipad and want to create a cabrillo log file. Does anyone know if I can use word and save as a .txt file and then attach to an email or can I simply use my email program and just insert text as if it were a message?

Any help would be appreciated.
 
 
Thanks

Hi Doc,

If you compose a note or file using the built-in Notes app, and avoid doing any sort of formatting (i.e. bold), and then save ("Save to Files" via the share icon), that file will be a text file. It actually acquires a .txt filename extension when you save it.

Then, you can attach that file to an email, and it will be what you're looking for.

Formatting the contents of that file in Cabrillo format... that's on you. But I think you know what you're after in that regard :-)

Let me know if you need screen shots to walk you through it.

Also, if you go to www.b4h.net/cabforms/ that can generate a cabrillo
file for just about any contest.

Thanks Jeff I will try both suggestions.
most appreciated. Planning on working outside as a single operator on Winter Field Day.
I have found my club operations too hectic, but love to operate CW. So will give a try.
