Re: Re: Satellite Contacts for Awards



Hi Wayne, All

As far as logging solutions go, I have not found anything to touch VQLOG,
the excellent offering by Gabriel EA6VQ. A keen VHFer himself (I have worked
him several times on 6m from South Africa), he has all the facilities built
in for satellite, and separate report facilities for award reports are
already there. It is very easy to use, and costs only $18.
