AC2C's SKCCLogger

Version 03.00.11 released on 24 October 2018

Note:
The SKCCLogger available from this webpage is for PC's running Windows 7 (SP-1) and above. SKCCLogger downloads for Windows XP, MacOS, and Linux are available from the SKCCLogger User Group or from AC2C's SKCCLogger Downloads Page.

The logger's author depends on the SKCCLogger User Group to support the MacOS and Linux versions as he does not have either of those platforms available to him for development or testing.

The SKCCLogger:
    • Uses information from downloaded membership data files to optionally auto-insert
      member information as you log contacts.
    • Keeps a running display of the number of QSOs you have accumulated along with
      a count of unique Cs, Ts, and Ss you contact during a sprint.
    • Automatically reads the VFO frequency from your connected radio and auto-completes
      the Frequency and Band as you log a contact.
    • Allows you to control your VFO from within the Log Entry window, making it a snap to QSY.
    • Saves and recalls specific settings for multiple radio configurations.
    • Optionally displays a running checklist of all Unique SPCs contacted during a sprint.
    • Maintains a folder of backup logs to provide for recovery from a catastrophic computer
      (or user) error. This facility also provides for a limited "roll-back" capability.
    • Provides automatic insertion of SKCC Numbers for ADIF logs imported from other
      logging programs.
    • Displays a list of previous QSOs with the same member as the callsign is being entered.
    • Includes Award Application Processing for Centurion, Tribune, Senator, DXC, DXQ,
      WAS, WAS-C, WAS-T, WAS-S, Prefix, RagChew, and QRP awards.
    • Provides automated reporting for Monthly Brag Input.
    • Supports tracking of QSL Sent/Received status.
    • Includes a complete Compiled Hypertext User Guide including multiple screen shots.

Although not designed as an everyday logger, the SKCCLogger has a log-merge function that allows you to use it to keep one master log, even as you set up logs for individual sprints. All logs are saved as *.adi (ADIF) files, ready for uploading to eQSL or for signature-processing for LoTW.

You can download stand-alone PDF versions of the Revision History here and User Guide here.

The SKCCLogger makes no permanent changes to your PC, does not make changes to your PC's registry, and can be easily removed if you decide not to continue using it.

To install: Download the automated installation file from the SKCCLogger Download Page.

K2RFP's Sprintlogger and QSL Cardmaker

Sprintlogger

This is the original logging program for SKCC sprints, so it is for CW only. It is a 32-bit Windows program that runs on all flavors of Windows from Windows-95 onward. It runs on 64-bit Windows-7 as well since that operating system is backward compatible for 32-bit programs. It runs on Linux using WINE. It is a very compact program that does not alter your system registry.

The data for each sprint is kept in its own ADIF file so it can export to other logging programs or for signing and uploading to the ARRL's Logbook of the World. You can import ADIF files from other logging programs into Sprintlogger. The data also can be exported to a CSV or pipe file so it can be used by a spreadsheet program.

The main window of the program shows a data panel for the data relevant to the current QSO and a grid showing data for past QSOs in the file. The program setup provides options on which data fields to display in the grid. This allows you to reduce the computer screen real estate that the program takes up.

The program provides optional SKCC data lookup and entry as well as frequency set/get for up to four radios selected from a list of more than a dozen popular radios.

QSL Cardmaker

This program allows you to design your own QSL card and produce a jpeg image of it. The program produces images for the standard 3.5 x 5.5 QSL-card size but can also be set to produce a 4 x 6 format by adding a 1/4 inch border all around. This enables the image to be printed as 4 x 6 photos at any photo printing service. The recipient then has the option of keeping the 4 x 6 photo or trimming off the border to produce the standard 3.5 x 5.5 QSL-card size. The program can also produce the standard 3.5 x 5.5 format in a reduced pixel count so the image can be quickly sent via email.

The program provides procedures to add and manipulate the background, shapes like rectangles and circles, image overlays, text boxes, your call sign, and boxes for adding the QSO info.

QSL Maker also was designed for Windows 95 and up, and it runs on Linux using WINE. Give it a try!

You can download either program here. Visit Dick's website at http://cwfun.org for other programs he has made available to the amateur-radio community.

Senator List Utility

This application is designed to help members who have reached the Tribune Tx8 level and are working toward their Senator Award. It produces two lists in CSV format (Excel compatible). It uses data from the SKCC website -- the tribunelist.txt -- and an ADI file containing your log. It compares the tribunelist.txt with your log and gives you two output files: NEEDS.CSV and WORKED.CSV. NEEDS.CSV is a list of tribunes you have not worked since your Tx8 date and WORKED.CSV is a list of the ones you have worked, i.e. your SENATOR List for your senator award. Download the README.PDF for the instructions for installing and operation. The SENATORS.ZIP file contains the application. Just follow the directions for installation.

W9RFX code-practice software

This CW training software is intended to improve your morse code copying skills. This is achieved by providing a simple and yet versatile means for the creation of CW *.WAV "music" files. Files can be created with multiple source text options. Created CW .WAV files can be saved to the hard disk, reloaded, or burned to a CD or converted to MP3 files for use on an MP3 player. By listening to generated CW files maybe an hour or so a day while walking the dog, exercising, or commuting, you will be amazed at how rapidly your ability progresses. Initially, keep word length to 5 characters maximum, and create a sequence of files, maybe each file of 10 minute duratition, at a gradually increasing speed (WPM).
