Software. I use many programs but these are the important ones:
- I use Log4OM V2
as my logging program. It interfaces nicely with LoTW, eQSL,
QRZ and Clublog.
- I'm also a MixW
registered user. It's a great program for many digital modes!
- I use N1MM
for contest logging.
- I'm also a registered user of UI-VIEW.
The best APRS program out there. I use it with AGW Packet Engine (Free)
- I use WSJT-X
for JT65 and FT8/FT4. FT8 is great during low sunspot times !
- I also use Gridtracker
as an add-on to WSJT-X. A great software program that also interfaces
- To be able to switch easily between radios, I use a free, small but
perfect little piece of software called Omni-Rig.
