Hello, its has been a while since I had my last post.. a great while! I am looking at getting back on the air(HF wise), I am looking for a good logging program for my computer, I have upgraded that too and I cannot remember where I got my last program from! I am hoping to find a free version or low cost looging program if possible. The program I had worked well for general every day contacts as well as a contesting mode that allowed me to log and find duplicates right away. If you have any suggestions please let me know. Thanks Rob

You might check http://www.n3fjp.com. He has software for everyday logging (called ACLog) plus specialized programs for just about every major contest. It's $19 for ACLog, or $39 for everything (including future programs at no additional cost).
N3FJP is a great suite of logging programs.
And, his support is strickly TOP SHELF.
My club used it for field day last year, and was the best thing since sliced bread.
A decent freebie for contesting is N1MM.
Good luck finding something that suits YOU.
Fool me once...Shame on YOU.
Fool me twice...Shame on ME !
The ACLog suite of software is the stuff! Well worth the fee.
We've been smeckledorfed!
I would advise that HamRadio Deluxe software is EXCELLENT, and freeware to boot. It has logging capability with multiple files, mapping, DXspotting, PSK, and perhaps most interestingly, very good "rig control" software for most modern menu driven rigs. The logbook has an automatic QRZ lookup table that loads FCC/QRZ data for each entry if you are so inclined and have an internet connection. This program is well layed out and "ergonomic"...almost too good to be free!
Another good program to have is MultiPSK. The full version isn't free, but the trial version has lots of features including a logbook. The interface screen isn't as ergonomic and is kind of cluttered, but I think it is a must have for anyone who uses digimodes.
My favorite mode? Morse, of course.
HamRadioDeluxe is a good program but has a bit of learning curve and can be overkill if all you want is a logging program. Check out winlog32 also. It's good and meets the

Wrote my own. Dirt simple and stores entries in Cabrillo format in a Text file.
I use jlog - http://jlog.org/ Written in Java, can be used on most computing platforms. Also free!!
Another vote for the N3FJP suite of logging software - extremely intuitive and easy to learn. #Support is absolutely first class.
I echo the N3FJP comments, great software!
