Amateur Contact Log 6.0 and VT QP 1.2 are Now Available!

Home News

Hi All,

Amateur Contact Log 6.0 is Now Available!

I wasn't planing for a new release of AC Log just now, but the unrelenting requests to add FT8 to the mode drop down list (even though it could easily have been typed in) finally made my cry uncle! There are a few other goodies I had been working on that you'll find in this upgrade as well!

Enhancements include:

- You can optionally display digital modes in the DX Spots list based on the frequency of the DX Spot (Click Settings > DX Spotting > Configure > More Filtering > Display Digital Modes to enable). You'll also need to download the latest BandPlan.txt file by clicking File > Download Country Files from AD1C.

- AC Log now uses ARRL's LoTW User's list to identify LoTW users (an L is placed in the DX Spots list). Click eLogs > LoTW Users > ID LoTW Users to enable the feature. If you already have enabled the feature in AC Log 5.9, AC Log 6.0 will detect that you don't have the new LoTW user list on start up and download it for you with a single click.

- The last LoTW upload date of the station contacted is optionally displayed when tabbing from the call field. (Click eLogs > LoTW > ID LoTW Users on Call Tab). If the station you are working has a recent upload date, that will give you a better sense if he is really active with LoTW or not.

- Added FT8 to the mode drop down lists.

- Ability to update mode drop down lists without requiring a new release.

As always, upgrades are free to registered users. You'll find AC Log 6.0 here.

And the upgrade steps here.

Vermont QSO Party In State 1.2 Log is Now Available!

At the request of the Vermont QSO party folks, I've updated the Cabrillo output format to help them identify unique DX entities. This change only affects the in state version. The out of state version (1.0) is still fine.

This upgrade is free to registered users. You'll find Vermont QSO Party In State 1.2 Log here.

And the upgrade steps here.

Enjoy these new features and enhancements!

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:
