2017 Results

Logging Software

The popular N3FJP WIQP Log is available at N3FJP Amateur Radio Software. Version 4.0 was released in October, 2017. There are two versions of this software:

Everyone is encouraged to upgrade, especially if you're running a much earlier version. The cost for a new individual program is currently $8.99 and upgrades are free (original license number needed).

The N1MM Logger+ is another popular logging program, available here.
    N1MM Tips

In 2017, over 80% of logs received used one of these two loggers, roughly evenly divided between them. Of the two, the N3FJP logger is easier to set up and use, and it does the basic functions very well. N1MM is very full-featured and certainly is the choice for those doing advanced rig control and who want to have other software running besides the logger. Because of this complexity, it has a steeper learning curve than N3FJP.
