Our OQRS system is optimized to accept properly formatted ADIF files. Some logging programs, even though they produce an ADIF file, will not work. Those loggers tend to have extraneous information in the file, i.e. names, address, QSO notes
– DXLab Suite’s DXKeeper produces the proper file format
– Files produced by HRD may not work
