LOGic's electronic callbook feature far
surpasses anything else on the market. Not only does it provide support for
the usual commercial CD-ROM and Web-based subscriptions, it formats data
from callbook web sites so that it may be utilized by LOGic.
Additionally, LOGic includes a built-in
database which is a compilation of all callsign databases available via the
internet. This super-fast database is so fast it may be used while
contesting. You may update it while online, and access it when you are
operating mobile or portable and not online.
Perhaps the best feature of LOGic's callbook is the ability to automatically search multiple databases
and web sites until the call is found. This search is done intelligently -- LOGic will not search a US database
for a French call, for instance. You may specify that a database is comprehensive for the country in
question. For instance, if a US call does not exist in the FCC web site database, it is not a valid call,
and there is no use in searching further. (Manual database selection is provided for looking for expired calls).
You can specify the order in which LOGic searches the databases. For instance, you may specify
LOGic's internal database is to be searched first, since practically no waiting is involved. Putting
the FCC and other countries' government web sites next will search for calls not in LOGic's internal
database. Then you may put QRZ.COM after that, and so forth.
Web sites are processed in background so that you may continue to log while waiting for a response from the web
site. The data to be logged will pop into the log when it is returned.
Unattended batch mode updates imported data.
Advertisements from commercial sites such as QRZ.COM are displayed to comply with fair usage
standards and to keep these valuable sites available for future use.
