Amateur Contact Log 7.0.2 is Now Available & More!

Home News

Hi All,

Chris, Kimberly and I are excited to let you know that...

Amateur Contact Log 7.0.2 is now available!

The primary emphasis for this release is our added support for the annual Route 66 event, which runs from September 11 to September 19. We received lots of encouraging words on our support for the annual 13 Colonies event and Route 66 works identically. Just click View > Route 66 to display the Route 66 form. More details on the annual Route 66 event are here.

Other enhancements that you will also enjoy in this release include:

- Ability to disable audio alert when your station is spotted (Settings > DX Spotting > Play Audio Alert When My Call is Spotted)

- Ability to list QSOs with unconfirmed 4 character and 6 character Grids (List > QSOs with Unconfirmed > Grids)

- Checks date of the country list on the AD1C web site and prompts user to download latest if a newer file exists

- Watch list entries no longer require a description

- On 13 Colonies and Route 66 User forms - band evaluated when clicking on green spotted station

- Corrected WSJT coloring for states where new on band criteria was selected (Settings > New Contact and QSL Alert Options)

- Ability to launch TQSL for signing and upload from the LoTW form in a Linux environment

As always, upgrades are free to registered users. If you are currently running AC Log 6.8 or later, it should detect the new upgrade and offer to retrieve it on start. If you have any problem with the automatic upgrade (or you are running a version prior to 6.8), you can install AC Log 7.0.2 from here (you should not have to uninstall your previous version).

Updates to All Contest Programs Now Available!

Back in our May announcement, we detailed the new features for all the contest software we were working on and listed the programs we had completed at that time. As promised, we have now completed revisions for all the 100+ programs in our package which include:

- Direct Interface with WSJT-X

- Font scaling based on manual form height changes of main form

- Frequency Privileges form enhanced to show current frequency and DX spots

- Winkeyer settings now saved along with your other CW settings when you click the Save Settings button

- Winkeyer: Use _ to merge characters and | to add a small amount of space between characters

- RI: commands in F1 now can be programmed with loop delay

- 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 the last released version, it should detect the new upgrade and offer to retrieve it on start, but if you have any problem, or you are running an older version, you can install the latest from the specific program's download link on (you should not have to uninstall your previous version).

Enjoy the new versions!

Package Upgrade Information...

Donations are Gratefully Accepted!

And in response to the often asked question for which Kimberly, Chris 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:
