Logger32 is handy tool for any radio amateur who needs to create a log database with the details about their activity. It comes in handy when you want to store the details of other users who share the same passion.
The main goal of the application is to create a list of contacts in order to easily reach other radio amateurs from around the world. The QSO list includes multiple details related with the user identity and location.
For instance, you can store the name, address and prefix for all the callsigns from your database. Additional details include the radio band, frequency or distance. You can also add other details included in the ADIF specification.
Although you can add the entries manually, the import feature enables you to easily build your database by importing log information from ADIF files. The entries can be completed with the IOTA numbers in order to update the existing contacts.
The program allows you to view satellite information, DX spots and IOTA spots in a separate window. The satellite viewer enables you to determine the geographical position and coverage area for each item from the list.
When you run the program for the first time, the sheer number of windows might overwhelm you, especially if you are not a seasoned radio user. However, this layout enables you to choose which information you want to view and arrange the windows in order to create an efficient working environment.
Although the included documentation can shed some light on how to access the program features, you need to know the basics about amateur radio communication in order to use its full potential.
To sum up, Logger32 includes all the basic features required to create a logbook for radio communication. Moreover, it allows you to control the connected radio and antenna orientation which makes a good choice for most radio operators.
