Re: Ham Log Grid Square Mapping Software



Bert,

Just downloaded your program and uploaded my log. 
Seems to work OK, except that worked grids only show
in bold print.  I am not seeing the colored-coded by
band boxes around each worked grid, as shown on your
web page.  I'm using an IBM Thinkpad T42 with Windows
XP.

Does the program show the total number of grids
worked?

Thanks much for the program,
Bill NZ5N
