Field Day Logging
If you are doing Field Day 2022 from home (we understand the whole world cannot do Field Day at Shaffer Park) you will want some logging software.
Most of us use the N3FJP software for Field Day. Current version is 6.63
If you plan to make fewer than 30 contacts, the Field Day app can be free. A la carte, this one application is $8.99, or go whole hog and buy the entire N3FJP suite, every program, with upgrades for $59.99 An incredible value.
If you want something completely free the best alternative I know of is the N1MM+ logger. https://n1mmwp.hamdocs.com/
I used N1MM+ for a few contests and while easy to use, the N3FJP software is just so much easier to set-up. My contesting style will cause W3SOX and AF3I to scream “no” but I typically wake up Saturday, cannot find anything better to do, turn the radio on, hear a contest, realize I can probably make a few Qs then I go looking for the software. By the time that is done, the band has faded out and I didn’t do so well. N3FJP just seems easier to find the right contest software and install it.
While you are at it, the 13 Colonies Special Event is coming (July 1-7, 2022). The N3FJP Amateur Contact Log easily handles that event. After you launch AC Log, be sure to click on View >> 13 Colonies for an enhanced tracking tool developed by Scott, Kimberly, and Chris.
The PA QSO Party is coming as well on October 8 and 9, 2022.
