I saw a couple of people working Rick. But I never saw even a hint of Rock's trace.

Listened a bit for him, but no luck.  Probably too close.

I created something similar, also using Excel. Attached is PDF of screen printout. 
Used QSO log data from my N3FJP ACL log file.  
Kept track of grids Worked and Confirmed by utilizing conditional formatting.  
Can sort on Band, Mode and Month.
Takes a little effort to use, but was very handy for last years ARRL Grid Chase.

Jerry, it opens fine in Libre Office, which is the replacement for Open Office.  The file is and Excel file that is XML formatted and the older Open Office will not read it.

here is the download for LibreOffice.  you will want the version 6.0.7

I would like to share something I created in Excel.  It is a representation of the continental us using grid squares.  I use it to keep track of my PSK grid contacts.  I highlight the appropriate squares.  Not sure anyone is interested.  Let me know.  Not sure if I can attach the files but I will try.

A great New Year to all.

Re: Possible IOTA Activation

 

I'm thinking that the only thing that really matters is whether it's on the "RSGB IOTA Entity List".
There's all kinds of unusual "entities", just as they're on the DXCC Country List.
Anyway, it's interesting reading...

Never done a IOTA Activation before, and have never been to Cedar Key, so this will be a double first for me.  Hope I can find a good spot.  Not sure how much time I'll have or how long the computer battery will last - but planning on having a hoot!  Wish me luck and hope to work you tomorrow from the Key!

Barry -

The presence of a man-made bridge does not violate IOTA rules. (There's no rule that says that the only access can be by sea or air.)

A natural land bridge does (violate the rules).

Nice.  However, it show up as a read only file and can’t seem to color in squares I’ve worked.  Probably my fault as I’m not as well versed on Excel as I would like to be.
