W3KM`s Free Amateur Radio software
I wrote GenLog in DOS in the `80s and started writing Windows GenLog in the early 90`s
since I wanted to operate more HF contests, but didn`t want to spend time configuring
each contest. Also if I was the author, I could make changes and add contests at
will. I didn`t want on-line/CD callsign lookup or radio/rotor control.
Initial comments from users showed a fair amount of interest because it was easy to use
and the logger supported many contests. There are no setup files to configure before
starting a contest since contests are initialized from info saved in the setup form.
° KM Rover
I created this VHF rover logger in 1998 for use by ROVERS in the `Big 4` ARRL VHF/UHF
contests. It has encoded outputs to drive a band switching decoder. Users wanted a GPS
interface and keystroke shortcuts added so logging could be done while being mobile
throughout the contest. The GPS function tells the operator the rotator beam heading,
to enable working stations while driving. See Initial use instructions.
This logger is totally ARRL VHF/UHF contest oriented and has encoded outputs to drive
a band switching decoder. First written in DOS in the 80`s, then converted to Windows
using VB3. See the Initial use instructions to learn the SW.
° Cabrillo Evaluator
First written in 2000 and offered to contest sponsors wishing to migrate to Cabrillo log
submissions. SW now scores Cabrillo logs for 476 contests and can score 1500 logs in auto
batch run. Also useful for contesters wishing to check their Cabrillo score. Read more.
See the Initial use instructions.
Pack Rat Net Control written in DOS in 1990, converted to Windows in 2010. Logs any net.
Read the initial use instructions to get started.
° ADIF Prefix Calculator
Loads WPX type ADIF files with the <PFX:xxx> tag and counts the total unique callsign
prefixes - overall, by band and mode and by mode.
° Skeduler is a `multiple alarm` clock. Up to 40 alarms can be set in each sequence and
any number of sequences can be added. Written in 2000 so I could schedule January and
June VHF Contest QSOs.
Other software was written to make log checking easier for me and to assist contest
sponsors using my adjudication software.
