    Log Windows writes "Log Windows to support ARRL's Logbook of the World

    Program will provide both direct and ADIF support of LoTW

    Muscle Shoals, Alabama. July 24, 2001. Creative Services Software announced
    today that the popular Log Windows logging program would support direct and
    ADIF access to the new Logbook of the World, approved by the ARRL Board of
    Directors during their meeting in Rocky Hill, CT on July 20-21, 2001.

    Using digital certificates issued to a ham by the ARRL and stored in Log
    Windows, the program will create digitally signed log records, which will
    then be sent to the ARRL's LoTW server via email. This will allow hams to
    have a 'one-button' process for sending their logs to the ARRL for DXCC and
    other award credit.

    "This will be a major enhancement to Log Windows and DXing in general", said
    Rick Ruhl, W4PC, CSS's President and Lead Developer. "So many hams have been wanting to find a way to be able to QSL via the Internet, and the ARRL has
    moved on this technology".

    No release date has been announced, since the server side of the Logbook of
    the World must be completed first.

    "We should be able to be there on 'Day 1'", Ruhl said, "and we think that is
    quite important to the users of Log Windows".
