BAND MAP

LOGic's Band Map.

LOGic’s band map displays spots in order by frequency to give you a visual overview of activity across the spectrum. You can get automatic "hands-off" information on the stations you are hearing by merely tuning your rig.

To open the band map, click the Band button on the Spot Log form.

Each spot that passes the filtering of the spot log is displayed. If it is needed for anything, the award and subaward it is needed for is shown.

The blue bar represents your rig and its current frequency. The frequency display changes and the bar moves as you tune your rig. Any spots within 1 kHz of the rig's frequency are hilighted with a dark gray background. Any spots within 3 kHz are hilighted with a light gray background.

The arrowhead in the lefthand column indicates the current spot -- the spot for which information is currently displayed. You may change the current spot by tuning the rig, clicking on the spot, or using the arrow keys.

The band map is fully integrated with your radio and the log form. If you see a spot that you are not currently tuned to, but want to try to work, you may double-click the spot, or select the spot with the mouse and arrow keys, and click Set Rig. Clicking the Log button logs the spot as a new QSO. The >|< button centers the rig in the display window. Use this if you scroll away and want to return to the current operating frequency. Slightly QSYing the VFO will do the same thing.

As you tune across the band, your screen automatically updates to show information relative to the spot being tuned to.

If the spot is needed for an award, you can instantly see your QSLing status for the entity mixed-band-mixed mode, band, mode, and band-mode. Hold your mouse over the status icons for an explanation. For this example, the green thumbs-up means that the Philippines is confirmed. On 17 meters, the red thumbs-up we have worked it and are expecting to receive a QSL (we put Requested in QSL Received for the 17M DU contact). The checkmark means that we have worked the Philippines on phone. The red X means that we have not worked the Philippines on 17M CW. (We've worked it on CW and on phone, but not 17M phone. Our 17M QSO with the Philippines was on some other mode).

As you navigate the band map, LOGic Info window, Other QSOs window, and Progress 1 or Progress 2 are updated automatically.


Here are some important notes about the band map:
  • Spots are automatically deleted after a period of time. Ten minutes is the default, but you may change this by clicking the Setup button. The green indicator bars indicate how old the spot is. No green indicator, or a very short green indicator means that the spot is new. As the spot ages, the green bar increases in size. When it reaches clear across the Age column, the spot will be deleted.
  • Browse window shows QSOs in columnar format for fast, easy viewing.  Great for net operations.
  • Only one spot per station per band and mode is displayed (there may be multiple records per spot if it is needed for more than one award, however). If a new spot is received for a station that is already in the band map, the new information replaces the old. The age bar will be reset.
