FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS OF Win-EQF*

Win-EQF* comes packed with useful features, but in order to be convinced you'll have to try it yourself.
In case you don't care for a "test drive" - have a look at a few screenshots. We stick to the "old-fashioned" character mode in order to provide an uncluttered and efficient logging screen. No popping windows, no moving frames, no fuzz - just pure performance QSO logging. All the information and functionality you need is there - only a few keystrokes away. 

 

  • Easy-to-use menus, with mouse or keyboard commands for commonly-used items.
  • Previous QSO information presented automatically as soon as callsign is typed.
  • Radio interface for control and display of any computer-ready rig's frequency and model.
  • Switch between two stations (rig, CW, rotator, and antenna switch) quickly while logging.
  • PacketCluster(tm) tracks DX spots using TNC, the DX-Telnet program or a direct telnet connection.
  • Complete TNC terminal program including a monitor window, shortcuts, and file transfers.
  • Name and QTH lookup from HamQTH.com, Buckmaster HAMCALL, SAM, QRZ.com, and Radio Amateur Callbook databases (requires separate license/registration).

  • Sound backup and restore routines. Also includes backup of all your program settings.
  • Printable user's manual (PDF).




 

Please note: Win-EQF* supports a number of the popular contests, but its main design goal is to be a user-friendly and efficient general-purpose logger. If you're a hardcore contester, you'll probably prefer a special-purpose contest logger such as N1MM Logger or SD by EI5DI. For the casual contester, though, Win-EQF* will probably be sufficient. 

Some of the features require an operational internet connection.
