The Origin of Amateur Contact Log
In the beginning of my amateur experience, my Dad, Fred - WB3DLV (now a silent key who LOVED CW), and I used index cards to keep track of our contacts. After I started computer programming, I knew I wanted to create a program that would perform all the functions my Dad and I used to dream about when I was a kid. The result of this dream is Amateur Contact Log.
Not only have our ideas been included, I have also incorporated many of the fine suggestions I have received from thousands of AC Log users around the world. I can't thank everyone enough for your ideas, support and kind words. I am grateful for all the positive response I have received for AC Log, and very thankful for the friends I have made as a result of it. I hope you enjoy using AC Log as much I enjoy creating and supporting it!
Amateur Contact Log Features:
Very easy and intuitive to use!
Tracking of Worked All States, Worked All Counties, Worked All Countries, DXCC, VUCC, Grids, Zones, IOTAs, Lighthouses and many other achievements.
The user interface is customizable! You can choose to display any of the data fields you want and decide where you want them. The DX Spotting window can now be set to any size you like! You can also change the font sizes of all the fields, lists and text boxes as well!
Includes a database of counties and countries.
Query by band, mode, or power level to easily track your accomplishments by individual and multiple criteria.
Lists previous contact details with the station currently being worked including name, dates of previous contact(s), QTH, etc. just by typing the call in the call field and hitting the Tab key.
A bearing and distance calculator from your QTH for DX contacts and grid squares.
Easily import data from our contesting software via ADIF Format.
Full support for standard Amateur Data Interchange Format (ADIF) import and export. Export your whole log or selected records in ADIF for applications such as eQSL and the ARRL's LoTW (Log Book of the World).
Easily manage your log and Logbook of the World (LoTW). ACLog will sign and upload your contacts to LoTW and download your confirmations from LoTW.
Upload QSOs directly to eQSL and Club Log.
Interfaces with most Elecraft, Icom, Kenwood, Ten Tec and Yaesu radios.
A Net Manager form, used for logging with multiple stations. Whether you are managing a formal net or just joining in on a casual round table, this form makes logging with a group quick and easy.
Provides DX spotting via Telnet, your packet TNC or AGW Packet Engine. Audio alert for needed spots.
Send keyboard CW via your comm port or WinKey and play wave files via your sound card.
Quickly print basic QSL label strips and address labels (does not support label printers and labels are not customizable through AC Log).
Interfaces with the QRZ and Ham Call Internet lookup services.
Optionally display your call sign when the program loads!
Fully networkable! Whether you want to use AC Log for a DXPedition, or you just want to access your log from multiple PCs simultaneously at your home or club station, AC Log will support multiple clients updating a single database, just like my Field Day software!

Here is a quick start video I created that will give you a whirlwind tour of some of the main features of Amateur Contact Log:
The download for the freely available FCC / RAC call book database look up function is now coded directly into AC Log. Just download the data from the Call book menu option. If you would like to download the calldata files (which are updated weekly) directly from the FCC and RAC, click the links below (be careful, even zipped the FCC file is over 40 meg!) After download, you must convert these files before you can use them in AC Log. The coversion tool is not in the C# rewrite, but you can use AC Log 3.4 for that, which you will find here. (From AC Log 3.4's menu options click File > Convert FCC Database or Convert RAC Database and follow the instructions on the form.)
