VU2UR

I am ARASU, 78 yrs young, call: VU2UR from Bangalore City Loc: MK82rv in South India.

Coming straight to business, the preferred log format for reporting intrusions into amateur bands as followed bt IARU Region 3, is as follows:
I am reproducing my last report to R3 MSC.

Explaining the possible areas needing clarifications;
BW: Band width of the intruding signal
EMM: is the mode as per IARU format. USB is J3E/u. LSB is J3E/L, A1A for CW; A3A for AM
ADM: stands for Administration or ITU Country code
ID: is identification; UNID for unidentified;
DESCRIPTION: Details of what you heard briefly.
Grid: GL of your(reporter's) QTH
Equiment details are there. If you can take a bearing through your direction finder, pse mention.

The time slot <0310-0325> means that the intruder was already there on freq at 0310 UTC and went on beyond 0325 UTC
0300-0315> means, the intrusion started at 0300 and continued beyond 0325 UTC
<0220-0300 means the intrusion which was there at 0220 utc continued and signed off at 0300 UTC. A single 4 fig time reference like 0306 says it was heard at that time, the status before that time and after that time is not known.

A small note book would be handy to jot down all these.

These logs are usually submitted in spreadsheet format. You can see my own August 2017 log thus far here as an example, and use it as a template for your own.
