XML for Reporting Contest Scores
This page describes the use of XML documents to transmit the results from amateur radio contests in three different situations:
- Dynamic results - results that reflect the current score at points in time during a contest
- Claimed results - results that reflect the score claimed by the entrant at the end of a contest, but before any log checking has been performed by the contest sponsor
- Final results - results that reflect the official published score after log checking by the contest sponsor
