New Versions of All Log Programs Available, AC Log 5.8, 20 Year Milestone & More!

Home News

Hi All,

I have several announcements to share, but first, a thank you...

Twenty Year Milestone - Thank You!

It's nearly impossible to believe it's been 20 years since I first started dabbling in Amateur Radio software. My goal in 1997 was to write some logging programs for my station and maybe share them with the local group. Kimberly and I never foresaw or imagined that N3FJP Software would become what it is today!

We would not have been able to do this without all your kind words, support and encouragement along the way. Thank you!

I am having more fun in radio now than ever. Lord willing, we are just getting started!

Upgrades for Amateur Contact Log and all My Contesting Software are Now Available!

The latest enhancements include:

- Added ability to select the sound card or device (RIGblaster, SignaLink, etc.) that you want to use to play your audio wave files (Settings > Transmit > Phone).

- Added ability to record wave files for transmit (Settings > Transmit > Phone).

- Removed Windows Media Player dependency.

- Flex radio users can now connect to their rig via the Flex API to read and change the frequency and mode of the active slice (Settings > Rig Interface and select Flex API).

- Additional DX Spotting filter options including blocking stations in your country and blocking stations not in the Super Check Partial list (to hopefully cut down on inaccurate DX spots). Click More Filtering on the DX Spotting set up form (Super Check Partial filtering for contesting software only).

- The CW % wildcard will now send the county abbreviation instead of the full county name (state QSO party programs only).

As always, these upgrades are free to registered users! All the latest versions are available for download from Just uninstall the existing program from Windows Control Panel and then install the latest.

Getting Ready for ARRL - RTTY Roundup by Interfacing Digital Software!

The ARRL RTTY Roundup is this weekend! Dave, W1HKJ and author of Fldigi has updated his digital software to interface with my programs via my new API. Dave just made some changes in Fldigi to support ARRL RTTY. If you are planning to use Fldigi this weekend, please be sure that you are running Fldigi 3.23.19! If you are planning to use Jeff, N7YG's software, please be sure you are running his latest versions too.

If you haven't interfaced any of the growing list of digital programs with my software including Digital Engine by Jeff, N7YG, Fldigi by Dave, W1HKJ, JT Alert by Laurie, VK3AMA, PSK Express by Jeff, N7YG and W4ELP Lookup Bridge program by Ed, W4ELP, you'll find quick start steps for each of these programs and links to more support here.

Don't wait until the day of ARRL RTTY to get set up!

And if your favorite digital program doesn't yet interface with N3FJP Software, please encourage the developer to visit this link to get started!

Getting Ready for Winter Field Day - Please Use Winter Field Day Contest Log Version 1.6 or Later.

The Winter Field Day folks have updated their rules for the 2017 running of Winter Field Day (January 28 - 29 this year). Please be sure you are running my Winter Field Day software version 1.6 or later. Prior versions will not support the current rule set. You'll find the complete Winter Field Day rules here.

Request for Customized AC Log Screen Layout Screen Shots.

One of the great features of Amateur Contact Log is each user's ability to customize the screen layout, fields displayed and tab order that suits your specific needs best. I'd like to create a web page or video of some of the very cool layouts that users have come up with, to help others generate ideas. If you have uniquely customized Amateur Contact Log and are willing to let me display your screen shot, please send one along! Ideally, please include the DX Spotting band map in the shot too.

If you've never taken a screen shot before, it's easy. Just tap the PrtScn key, start Windows Paint and click Edit > Paste. Save the file as a .jpg and send it along!

If you have't yet explored all of AC Log's user customizable layout features, this video will get you started.

New Country List Update from Jim, AD1C!

Jim, AD1C just released a new country file update on December 31. To update N3FJP Software, just click File > Download Country Files from AD1C. You only have to do that once, from any of the programs, to bring them all up to the latest.

More details on Jim's latest release are here.

And if you haven't thanked Jim lately for all his hard work, please do!

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.

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:
