There are many ways to “log” your contacts, paper logging, software logging or on-line logging sites typically a combination of these is the latest method. For contesting you will usually be required to submit a log (in Cabrillo format) to the sponsor of a particular contest, an example is to the ARRL for their “ARRL Field Day” (not a contest?)

There are many software programs that log your contacts, will create a Cabrillo file and may even submit it directly to the proper sponsor.
