Earlier on I wrote about logging software. I still use MacLoggerDX from Dog Park software. It’s a fine program and all my logs up to now have been made with MacLoggerDX.
However, I don’t like logging in a local application. For a couple of reasons:
– local logging makes the logbook unavailable from another location;
– it’s hard to show your logs online somehow;
– it’s hard to match your logs with someone else’s logs.
That’s why I was looking for an online log application. At first I thought such an application wasn’t yet available until I stumbled upon HamLog.eu, which was exactly like what I wanted! I’m going to upload my logs to this site and see if I like it. If I only had a local widget which collects my radio data from my rig and adds it to the logging information, then I will be in logging heaven 😉
Last night I tried to import my log from MacLoggerDX to HamLog. It wasn’t working very well, HamLog only recognized 5 entries of my log. I didn’t put more time in it because I was very tired. This morning I opened my mail and there was a mail from Csobádi Zoltán (the webmaster of HamLog.eu, HA9RQ).
He wrote very nicely that he had noticed that I was trying to upload my log and that things didn’t work out. So he looked into it and detected that I was using a Mac and HamLog didn’t interpret the Mac ENTER right. So he converted my log by hand! Now that’s what I call: good service!
Thank you Zoli, keep up the good work!
