Amateur Contact Log 5.1 Now Available & YO3DMU's PstRotatorAz Program Update!

Home News

Hi All,

Amateur Contact Log 5.1 Now Available!

Amateur Contact Log 5.0 added a feature of displaying the primary image that QRZ users have uploaded to their QRZ web pages when tabbing from the call field. It came to light that QRZ provides several versions of their data feed and the source that AC Log 5.0 used wasn't consistently updated with the latest picture links. I've updated AC Log 5.1 to use the QRZ feed that delivers the most recent image data links.

Also, clicking a spotted DX call sign on the band map will now cause AC Log to tab, initiating the associated lookup and data retrieval functions.

The QRZ image update only applies to QRZ XML subscribers. If you aren't a QRZ XML subscriber and don't use the band map, staying with AC Log 5.0 is fine.

When you upgrade, please be sure to follow these upgrade steps for AC Log:

As always, upgrades are free to registered users. Of course, this includes our N3FJP Software Package users!

YO3DMU's PstRotatorAz Program Update!

Codrut writes:

The latest PstRotatorAz program version is able, not only to take the callsign or locator information from AC Log and based on these to calculate the heading and rotate the antenna, but it is able now to take the frequency and tune a SteppIR or Ultrabeam antenna, or switch the antennas using for this various relays boards. To interface AC Log with PstRotatorAz select in PstRotatorAz "N3FJP's loggers" as Tracker, and set the "Tracking" mode.

I just tested it with the AC Log v5.1 and I found all these features working.
