Multipe New Rewrites and Field Day Reminders!
I have completed the upgraded rewrites for a number of additional programs! The latest versions include:
ARRL International DX Contest Log (DX Version) 2.0.
Stew Perry Contest Log 2.0
Maryland State QSO Party Contest Log 3.0
Pennsylvania State QSO Party Contest Log 3.0
West Virginia State QSO Party Contest Log 3.0
These are the latest completed programs in my series of rewrites, converting all my software from VB6 to C#.NET. They have all the enhancements that you've come to enjoy in the new rewrites.
You'll find the new programs on their respective pages here:
As always, upgrades are free to registered users. Of course, this includes our N3FJP Software Package users!
Reminder for Field Day Preparations!
This will be the second Field Day that the new, C#.NET version of my Field Day software will be in use. If you didn't upgrade to 4.0 last year, remember, for networking, everyone at your Field Day site must use either the old VB6 version (2.7) or the new C#.NET version (4.2). You can't mix the two versions and share a common data file.
If you are planning on networking, you can learn from the experiences folks reported last year here:
And all the details on setting up the Field Day software for networking, including the new, TCP networking option are here:
For those of you planning to install the software at your Field Day site, please keep in mind that even if you are installing from a CD, you may still need an Internet connection if you haven't ever previously installed a .NET program on that PC before. If the PC you are installing on doesn't have the .NET 4.0 Client framework installed, the installer will automatically download it from Microsoft's website. If you've been keeping up with Windows updates, you likely already have it, but you don't want to wait until Field Day morning, at a remote location away from the Internet, to try to install from your CD and discover you need an Internet connection to complete the installation!
Speaking of waiting until Field Day morning to install the software, or to attempt to set up a network from scratch, please don't! Take a little time well before the contest, get your PCs together and your network up and running. As always, problems easily solved in a relaxed atmosphere can seem insurmountable when the clock is ticking!
And in response to the questions we always receive when we neglect to include the following in our e-mail announcements...

Donations are Gratefully Accepted!
And in response to the often asked question for which Kimberly and I are very grateful...
"I know your upgrades are free, but I also realize how much time and effort coding these enhancements and new programs take and that your pricing policy doesn't fully reflect that. Can I send you something to show my appreciation for your continued efforts?"
Yes, thanks so much, your continued support in any amount is very welcome and deeply appreciated! You can use this page:
