This program converts county abbreviations in ADIF contest logs to a valid ADIF "CNTY" field. This is graphical Windows program.

Version 5.1 of the program was released on 20 January 2014. Click on this link to download the program. Click on this link to see the version history.

To install the program, just extract the "ADIF County Conversion.EXE" file from the ZIP archive and save it in a directory of your choosing. To run the program, just double-click on the program icon. You must choose the input file, the output file, and the state or regional QSO party name to convert. Then click on the Convert button. Any messages will be printed to the text area at the bottom of the program window.

NOTE: If you run the program and see an error message like this:

The program can't start because mfc100.dll is missing from your computer.

then you need to install one of these libraries, depending on your operating system:

Here are the program features:


The following contest exchange formats are supported. If your ADIF file uses a different field, send me the file and I will add support for it:

GenLog   <qth_rcvd:#>abbrev
N1MM   <EXCHANGE1:#>abbrev
NA   <comment:#>abbrev
TR   <name:#>abbrev
Writelog   <CNTY:#>abbrev (and others)
NOTE: CT to ADIF already exports the counties correctly for the contests it supports.


Version 4.0 was essentially a re-write of the graphical portion of the original Windows release. One bug fix was made for N1MM. There are a couple features that I may implement in the future, if there is interest:
