HF Logging program, Radio - Computer

Submitted by ve9gus on Sat, 2019/09/28 - 09:55

I am looking for a good HF logging program that I can interface with my rig to my Lap Top.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  VE9GUS.


Hi!  There are lots of them out there, here are a few I know about:

One logging program that our club has used for Field Day is by N3FJP, it can be found at   http://www.n3fjp.com/index.html   It costs a little bit to register it, but it's worth it.   It works with most radios.  And it can be set up to work for specific events, such as Field Day, etc.  and you can buy special modules for such things as RAC Canada Day, etc at a smaller price.  There is a trial period so you can check it out before you buy.

Some logging programs can be done on-line, but I don't think they can all connect to the radio.  I see a whole list of them at the Kingston ARC:  https://www.ve3kbr.com/op_aids/logging_programs.htm

FL Digi includes a logging feature, but the program is mainly for using the radio with digital modes, so it might be over-kill.  But it's free.  You can download FL Digi at:  http://www.w1hkj.com/


Ham Radio Deluxe has a nice logging feature.  It can also import ADIF files from other software (i.e. digital modes).  It also exports to LOTW and eQSL.  Even the old "free" version works quite well.

It also features rig control, digital modes, and much more.
