Hi All,

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Just a quick note to let you know that:

ARRL 10 Meter Contest Log 5.3 is Now Available!

I just received word earlier today that the abbreviation for the Mexican section DF is to be changed to CMX for this year's 10 Meter contest. I have updated both the North American and DX versions of the ARRL 10 Meter Contest Log accordingly. As always, this upgrade is free to registered users!

To upgrade, just uninstall the previous version from Windows Control Panel and then install the latest:

The complete upgrade steps are here:

Another DX Spot Filter!

When contesting, incorrectly posted DX Spots can sure nibble at our QSO rates. We click on what we think is a new station to work, only to discover the correct call is already in our log.

To hopefully cut down on that lost time, I've added an option to only show call signs that are in our Super Check Partial List. This isn't a perfect solution as new contest calls will be filtered in their debut, but it might be a help. To enable the feature, click Settings > DX Spotting, click the More Filtering command button and check the appropriate check box.

For more information on Super Check Partial and to download the latest Super Check Partial file, click Settings > Super Check Partial from the menu options of any of the contest programs.

You'll find this new feature in ARRL 10 Meter Contest Log 5.3 and Lord willing, the rest of the contest software soon!

Enjoy the 10 Meter Contest everyone! Let's keep our fingers crossed for good conditions!

And in response to the questions we always receive when we neglect to include the following in our e-mail announcements...

Package Upgrade Information...

If you have registered one or more individual programs and would like to upgrade to N3FJP's Software Package or N3FJP's Software Package and CD for full use of all our Amateur Radio software, we would be glad to apply the amount that you have registered so far as a credit towards that purchase. Please send us an e-mail directly and we'll let you know your balance.

N3FJP's Software Package includes more than one hundred programs for contesting, net management, general logging and other Amateur Radio related applications. In addition to full use of all these programs, registered package customers are also entitled to receive free passwords for any new software that is added to the package and free upgrades to existing programs. You'll find all the details on the Register Now page at

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:

or send your contribution by mail, payable to Affirmatech Inc., to:

As always, thanks for your kind words, support, linking to our web site and spreading the word about our software. Kimberly and I really appreciate it!
