Reminder: ARRL International Digital Contest this Weekend and Field Day in 24 Days!

Home News

Hi All,

We have two important reminders for you...

ARRL's Inaugural International Digital Contest is This Weekend!

With this weekend's brand new ARRL International Digital contest upon us, we've been receiving lots of password requests from N3FJP Software Package users. As always, upgrades and new programs that we add to the package are free to registered users. If you are a package subscriber and still need a password for our ARRL International Digital Contest Log, please request that here.

You will find our International Digital Contest Log here.

Since you will likely be interfacing digital software with our contest log, don't wait until the last minute to get set up! Take some time before the weekend so that you are all set when the contest starts. Our quick step guide to interface digital programs with our software is here.

And ARRL's contest rules are here.

ARRL Field Day Starts in 24 Days!

As we approach Field Day weekend, groups from all over the continent will be making final preparations, getting equipment, generators, food, rigs and computers together, antennas airborne, coordinating operating schedules and all the little things that make Field Day go. In many cases they will be on the air for many hours, striving to both show off the amazing hobby of Amateur Radio and turn in a competitive score. It is a huge amount of fun and a heck of a lot of work! Please help reward their great efforts by providing plenty of QSOs for their logs!

If you aren't already part of a group and would like to be, please reach out to your local club. It's likely they will be thrilled to have you participate with them! You can find clubs in your area here.

Even if you aren't a contester and you only have an hour to spare from home, please fire up your rig and give as many stations as you can a contact. Everyone you call will really appreciate your QSO and it will make their Field Day that much more enjoyable! In addition, you might be able to pick up a few more states towards your Worked All States Award.

Our ARRL Field Day software is here.

You will find a quick start video for using our Field Day log here.

If you can't find your Field Day password, please go ahead and retrieve it here.

If you plan to use a network for Field Day and haven't already done so, it's time to get all the PCs you'll be using together and make sure your network is all set. Complete details on networking our Field Day software using both File Share and TCP methods are here.

Please take a little time well before Field Day, get your PCs together and your network up and running. As always, problems easily solved in a relaxed atmosphere can seem insurmountable when the clock is ticking!


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 and general logging Amateur Radio applications, as well as our WX Warn weather software! 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, Chris and I are very grateful...

"I know your upgrades are free, but I also realize how much time and effort support, 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:

G. Scott Davis
118 Glenwood Road
Bel Air, MD 21014-5533

Thank you so much for your continued support!


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

73, Scott, Kimberly and Chris
