Some of the other screens from MicroLog

Return to the Home Page

Main screen
.. You can choose which fields you want displayed in the log at the top of the screen, and in what order you want the fields displayed.

Besides showing the US map and the world map, the main screen can also show dx-spots and band-charts.

The two rows near the bottom of the screen track awards such as worked all states (was) and worked 100 countries (dxcc).   A plus (+) sign in a box indicates you need that station for that award.

Map screen
.. With the CD version of MicroLog, when you enter a call and click the (map) button, you can see where the ham lives.   Since the free website version does not contain built-in callbooks, you will have to enter the ham's location before you can see it on a map.

Map screen
.. If you are connected to the internet, the program can link to Google maps or Google Earth to show the ham's location.

Detail screen
.. With the CD version of MicroLog, When you enter a call and click the (details) button, additional information is obtained from either the built-in US/Canadian callbook, or a foreign callbook CD such as the Radio-Amateur-Callbook CD or Buckmaster's HamCall CD.   For the free website version, detail information can be entered manually.

Detail screen
.. Additional information that is shown on the detail screen.

Detail screen
.. Still more information that is shown on the detail screen.

Award screen
.. From the main screen you can click the (awards) button to see detailed information regarding the states, countries, etc, that you have worked.

The totals can represent all stations or just the stations for a certain band or mode.   The totals can also represent just confirmed contacts, QRP contacts, mobile contacts, satellite contacts, etc.

Setup screen
.. From the main screen you can click the (setup) button to enter your personal information.   You can also specify whether you want totals to represent all contacts or just contacts for a certain band and mode.   You can also specify whether you want dx-spots to be for all bands or just the band you are working.   You can use the setup screen to customize the log on the main screen, having the log show just the fields you want.

Help screen
.. From the main screen you can click the (help) button to display the built-in manual.

Other-Stuff screen
.. From the main screen you can click the (other stuff) button to access the other features of the logging program.

List of countries
.. From the (other-stuff) screen you can display a list of dxcc countries, ARRL sections, or IOTA islands.

ITU zones
.. From the (other-stuff) screen you can display zone maps or grid maps.

From the (other-stuff) screen you can export records to an Adi, LoTW, or ASCII text file.   You can also print mailing labels and QSL cards.

Mailing labels can be printed on Avery 5160 or 5161 label-sheets.   5160 label sheets contain 30 labels per sheet and 5161 label sheets contain 20 labels per sheet.

QSL cards
.. These are the QSL cards that you can print from MicroLog .. nothing fancy.   You can also print mailing labels or QSL labels for your own cards.

Search screen
.. Since the US/Canadian callbooks are built into the program, you can search for such things as John Doe, all the clubs in Kansas City, Mo, or the current call for KC0KK.

Commercial callbooks
.. The US/Canadian callbooks are built into the CD version of the program, but not foreign calls.   If you have the CD version of the program and a commercial callbook CD (sold separately) then MicroLog will log the name and address of almost any ham in the world.

Rig interface
.. MicroLog does not have full rig control like the more powerful contest and dx logging programs, but it will read and log the frequency, band, and mode from some transceivers.

Field day module
.. A field day module is build into the program.

Rebuild the callbooks
.. With the CD version of the program you can download data from the FCC and the Canadian RAC and rebuild the callbooks.   You can rebuild the callbooks for about 9 months from the date you bought the CD.

I have been a computer programmer for over 50 years, an old timer.   The first two years I had very little to do, computers had not been invented yet.  

Yes, I use MicroLog.
