WriteLog is a very sophisticated
contest logging program running under Windows. It has a lot of powerfull
features which I can not discuss in detail on my homepage. You may have
a look at the authors homepage here.
I just bought the full version
(September 1999) after I tried out an earlier version (V 7.36) for
about one year. Version 7.36 is freeware. Because it is no longer available
on the WriteLog homepage, I decided to upload it to the QSLnet server.
For downloading and installation
procedure go to the end of this page.
Here are some screenshots
of WriteLog Version 10:
This is the actual QSO entry
screen of WriteLog
You can chose a port to connect
your interface to do cw. It is also possible to decode cw, rtty, psk31
with a soundblaster. If you have a soundblaster you can also transmit rtty
and psk31 or use wave files to call cq. You may even give a report using
pre-recorded numbers and letters.
There is also a feature to
connect to a packet cluster and you may interface to your transceiver for
frequency control/readout. As I said already there are to many faetures
to discuss them here.
and installation of WriteLog V 7.36
first you have to download to zipped files with a total size of about 2
run the program Writelog.exe and exit the program again. Now there a writelog.ini
file in your windows directory.
this file and add the following lines:
e.g. DL1 for DL1AA, here goes the prefix of your call }
save the file and you are ready to use WriteLog.
above entry is needed so that WriteLog knows in which zone and country
you are to calculate the score for the different contests correct.
