Logging

Post by VE3OSA » Sun Jun 11, 2017 8:19 pm

Hello Everyone
I was wondering what everyone uses for logging. Online sites? Software or just the old fashioned pen and paper?

Scott, some hams use pencil and paper, others don't log anything (not required by Industry Canada). Still others use one of these software (mostly free) programs: http://www.ve3kbr.com/op_aids/logging_programs.htm . Check them out and see which ones you are most comfortable with. 73. Doug/VE3WRF

Hi Scott, I use DXlab for regular logging as well as rig control, I really like the dx cluster portion of the package http://dxlabsuite.com/.

For contest logging we usually use N1MM+ http://n1mm.hamdocs.com/tiki-index.php

I use a waterproof paper book and pencil if only for the reason that my radio is used almost exclusively out in the field sans internet, computer etc.; but I do usually add it to qrz; I like to see the details of who I spoke to - their antenna, set up, distance, etc..
