The bedrock of ham shack
management is logging. We paid special attention to
making LOGic's logging forms absolutely the best! Our
unique forms provide two views of your data -- a
row-and-column format for quickly viewing multiple QSOs
(reminiscent of the old paper logbook), and a form
window for viewing detailed QSO info. You may customize
them to fit your logging needs.
LOGic's picture logging facility permits storage of any
number of images with each QSO. Store SSTV pictures,
eQSL cards, scans of your paper QSLs, etc. You may
enter a caption for each picture.
Log anything you want by creating your own user-defined
fields. Input fields may be simple text fields, numeric
fields, or single or multiple-line boxes that scroll
horizontally or vertically. You may enter a list of
predefined values (the rig or antenna used to make the
QSO for example), and the acceptable values appear in a
dropdown menu on the log form. Yes/No fields such as YL
are represented with a checkbox. The sizes of
user-defined as well as normal fields may be changed by
User-defined fields have all the functionality of
normal fields -- you can search on them or use them for
You have complete control of the log form layout. Drag
and drop fields to the desired location. Remove
Quickly search your data using any field or combination
thereof, regardless of how big your log is, using our
easy fill-in-the-blank filter form.
You may open several log forms simultaneously. You
could log a QSO in one form, while searching with
another. Or have one log form for HF DXing and another
customized form for VHF/UHF work.
When you log a station, information is automatically
logged from your computer-interfaced rig, callbook
databases, and previous QSOs. A separate window
automatically displays all previous QSOs with that
station, complete with QSL status for each QSO. Another
window shows all memberships that a station
holds--1010, smirk, FISTS, etc. An Info window shows
the DXCC country, zones, UTC and local times, ARRL
bureau status, and distance and direction to and from
the DX station.
Of course DXCC and zones are logged automatically.
LOGic also can log any item from previous QSOs with the
same station (great for contest exchanges). Membership
numbers (1010, SMIRK, etc. may also be logged
automatically using LOGic's Memberships database. Name,
address, grid square, county, etc. may be automatically
logged from free and subscription web-based callbook
databases, LOGic's built-in callbook database, and any
of the popular CD-ROM callbooks. All available callbook
databases are automatically searched until the call is
A variety of maps (gray line, political, and road maps)
are available, as well as demographic and political
information. Get real-time WX reports for yourself or
the station you are in QSO with.
LOGic may be optimized for single or multiple monitors.
Normally LOGic's windows are contained within the main
LOGic application window. If you have multiple
monitors, selected windows may be moved out of the
LOGic application window and into the Windows desktop,
where they may be placed in a second (or third or...!)
Further customize LOGic by choosing your favorite
colors. Use your favorite photos for form backgrounds.
Make your software uniquely yours! Transparent screens
maximize screen space utilization and aesthetics.
