Amateur Contact Log 6.9 is Now Available & More!

Home News

Hi All,

Kimberly, Chris and I have several good announcement updates for you!

Amateur Contact Log 6.9 is now available!

AC Log 6.9 enhancements include:

Amateur Contact Log now has the ability to load and save customized text entry location configuration files. This way, you can save and share multiple configurations such as POTA, a special event, home, etc., and easily switch from one configuration to another. Now, when you click Settings > Edit Fields Displayed and check the check box to configure, you will be prompted for a configuration file name. Then go ahead and customize as you like. To load a previously saved configuration, either from the main form, click Settings > Edit Fields Displayed > Load Configuration, or click the command button on the configuration form.

Additional form resize code! Fonts on the main form and several of the support forms will scale as you manually change the form's height. Width changes will not have an affect. If you contort the form, have expectations of large fonts regardless of size, are running a resolution less than 1920 X 1080, etc., you will probably want to keep the existing behavior by simply not manually resizing the form, or by entering a form size other than 100% (Settings > Appearance > Form Size). The folks that will find the new sizing features most useful are those running larger monitors at resolutions higher than 1920 X 1080. This will be a new tool for those that need it, while the software can easily be configured to continue to behave as always for those that don't.

The following support forms will now also scale with font: LoTW form, Awards 1, Awards 2, Network (also can just shows status) and Frequency privileges.

We've added considerable functionality to the Frequency Privileges form. The Frequency Privileges form now resizes, optionally displays DX Spots, can optionally stay on top, displays current frequency (with rig interface enabled); click on a spot to tune to the spot frequency and can be set to only show the HF bands. For those of you who remember the old VB6 versions of my software, the Frequency Privilege form can function much like the Spectrum Map form did in the old versions. In AC Log you will find it under Help.

Winkeyer settings will now be saved along with your other CW settings when you click the Save Settings button on the CW setup form and toggle with the Ctrl X command for SO2R operation.

Winkeyer: Use _ to merge characters (to create prosigns) and | to add a small amount of space between characters.

On the Settings > Transmit Phone form, RI: commands in F1 now can be programmed with loop delay.

A basic, bulk edit option is now included in AC Log (under the Settings menu).

You can now toggle most rigs from transmit to receive with Ctrl + Shift + A.

As always, upgrades are free to registered users. If you are currently running AC Log 6.8, it should detect the new upgrade and offer to retrieve it on start. We tested the auto install function with beta testers and it worked well, but this will be the first full deployment, so if you have any problem (or you are running a version prior to 6.8), you can install AC Log 6.9 from here (you should not have to uninstall your previous version) here.

AZ, MD, NE and SC QSO Party programs updated for rule changes!

You will find these new State QSO Party versions, updated for rule changes, now on the web site here and includes Arizona 2.5 in state and 2.3 out of state, Maryland QSO Party 4.5 (in state and out of state), Nebraska 4.3 (in state and out of state) and South Carolina 2.6 (in state and out of state).

As always, upgrades are free to registered users.


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.

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:
