Amateur Contact Log 5.2 is Now Available!

Home News

Hi All,

I have several more enhancements for you to enjoy in Amateur Contact Log 5.2!

Amateur Contact Log 5.2 is Now Available!

With the ARRL Centennial Points challenge and also while contesting, I find myself pressing Ctrl D to bring up the DX Spotting set up form to see the larger list of spots as needed. That list isn't organized or clickable though, so I decided to add another separate, floating form to display the DX spots in a more useful way. To display the floating DX spots form, just press Ctrl+Shift D. Just like the Band Map, you can click on the DX spots to tune your rig to the spot frequency and fill the pertinent fields in AC log!

While coding, I envisioned bringing this form up and closing it on the fly. During beta testing, some users decided to display this form instead of the main form's DX Spots window entirely in a more permanent configuration. If you would like to use the new form in that way, you can set the size of the dx spots window on the main form to 0% by clicking Settings > DX Spotting > Configure. You can also set the form to display automatically on start up there as well. The new form will remember the size, location, column widths and order you set when you next display it.

Lord willing, I plan to add this new form to the contesting software in the next few weeks as well!

Other enhancements you'll find in Amateur Contact Log 5.2 include:

- Main form changes to DX spots column widths and order are now saved.

- QRZ image / bio display will hide command buttons after 5 seconds. Mouse over form to redisplay the buttons.

- Added Watch List delete all button (will be useful after the ARRL Centennial Points Challenge concludes).

- Ability to save and load CW settings for easy transfer to other N3FJP logging programs.

- Ability to save and load phone wave settings for easy transfer to other N3FJP logging programs.

- Removed Tech + from frequency privilege form.

"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:
