RE Logging software



I was using the AClog for Terestrial V/U contacts.. and I attempted to use
it for sat contacts .. but it just dosent work well with lotw for that.


Then I asked the BB and got this email:






Take a look at DXKeeper, and associated programs. www.dxlabsuite.com  It
handles satellite QSOs well, supports LoTW, eQSL, imports and exports of
AIDF files, contests, etc, etc.  Very powerful, but the learning curve is
surprisingly gentle.  You can use as little or as much as you wish.  The
author, Dave, AA6YQ also has a great support forum for questions and
suggested features.  And the price is definitely right.







So I figured I woulkd try it out.. after all it is FREE. I downloaded it
into my PC (VISTA).. Imported my SAT log from AClog with an adif file.


And started editing QSO's so they mated with the appropriate fields for the
sats and the up/down bands.


After about 3 hours and 400+ contacts edited.. on the 1st try I succeeded in
uploading every contact into LOTW. I gained 20 QSL's in the process too!


I think I will still use AClog for my non-satellite contacts.. but I may use
this one for sat qso's alone.


Its complex.. but only as complex as you want it to be. ( hard to explain
until you try for yourself)


Give it a shot.. and post to the board what you think!
