The following lists the names to use as the value of the CONTEST: tag in the header of a Cabrillo-formatted contest log to indicate the contest. Cabrillo Names were determined to be the official Cabrillo name for a contest from the contest sponsor's web site or an e-mail exchange with the contest manager. In a few cases the name was adjusted to adhere to the Cabrillo standard for contest names. This list is an extension and update of the relatively short list of names shown in the Cabrillo standard. More information about the CONTEST: tag and the Cabrillo standard in general can be found at WWROF Cabrillo.
