Nick, G4FAL, sent me this helpful clarification email for those of us going to places where internet access might be problematic.
“The log submission time for the Commonwealth Contest has been reduced from seven days in 2016 to five days in 2017. In the vast majority of cases this should be an adequate period of time for producing a Cabrillo file and uploading it to the RSGB robot. In the event that an entrant has exceptional circumstances that prevent them from uploading their log within the five days they may contact the contest adjudicator (insert adjudicator details) explaining their predicament and asking if an alternative arrangement can be agreed.
We have some very faithful entrants who have only submitted paper logs in the past; we have arranged a route by which they can continue to do this if they are still unable to submit logs online.”
