I suspect the LoTW team has bigger concerns than making the site 
correctly interpret Cabrillo files for every possible contest.

I have uploaded almost 300,000 K8CC QSOs to LoTW fron just about every 
possible contest using ADIF files rather than Cabrillo.  ADIF is a more 
generalized format and carries the definition of each data field within 
the file.

ADIF is simply a different choice on NA's "SELECT FILES TO WRITE TO 
DISK" menu.  Your ADIF file will have the extention .ADI.
