    I use N3FJP currently and happy with it for both contesting and general logging.

    I used to use CT however it's no longer compatible with XP and CTWin isn't compatible with XP either for me anyway.

    I use a Microsoft Access file I created as it handles data better than Excel. I started off in the 1980's using a paper log in a spiral bound book sold by ARRL and will occaisionally even now write in the notables. Why?

    Software based programs are easier and faster but I can still pull my old handwritten logs and read them and I can't think of many software files I can do that with 23 years later.

    N3FJP's AClog and associated contest logging programs is very good. I switched after YEARS of headaches with Logic software and I am very happy with AClog (amateur contact log) Download the free trial and see what you think. The support from N3FJP and others on the yahoo usergroup is excellent.

    I don't use logging software for everyday QSO's, I'm still a paper logbook user. I do use logging software for contests and I mostly operate in VHF contests these days and I use the N3FJP software. I'm sure that they also have regular software, I don't have a URL but a google search should get you results.

    out of the free loggers that have been mentioned, specifically DXLabs and HamRadioDeluxe, I am leaning more towards HRD because of the feature in the logger to use "QRZ" lookup on a call sign, this may be possible with the latter but I cannot figure out how, and I really like this feature. I will check out the demo of AClog now and see what I think of that.

    HRD isn't as powerful, but I like the satellite tracking feature because I "try" to do some satellite work. I prefer it unless someone can convice me otherwise for DXLabs, maybe I am missing something. Anywho, I will update on my thoughts about AClog in a bit

    Thanks

    I just looked at the AClog demo, and I think I have made my decision. AClog rocks. I think I may register it, it's a toss up between HRD and AClog, but I think I will go with AClog just because of the ease of use, and the fact that I don't need to even push a button for the QRZ lookup, it just does it automatically.

    sweet guys! Thanks everyone for the opinions.

    please still if you have suggestions or whatnot let us all know [​IMG]
