    What's New



    Win-EQF - Going QRT After 20 Years:

    There aren't many ham radio programs that have lasted for more than 20 years, like Log-EQF. It has been a labor of love for most of that time, but sadly it's time to move on and let younger programmers fill the void.

    There will be no further sales of Win-EQF "Log-EQF for Windows" after December 31, 2009. I will continue to provide technical support for at least one year after that, but there will be limited updates to the program.

    I'm sorry if this decision disappoints some of you, but the constant work involved in supporting a Windows program for ham radio has become too time-intensive. The advent of Windows 7 was probably the last straw, on top of the never-ending changes required to accommodate new rigs, rotors, keyers, clusters, modes, contests, awards, callsign databases, etc.

    I want to thank all of my loyal users for the many years of support. It's been a real pleasure meeting some of you at hamfests and club meetings. Some of those eyeball QSOs have turned into lasting friendships. In particular, many thanks to John Shelton, K1XN, for his help in recent years to keep Win-EQF in distribution and the the DXCC prefix list up-to-date.

    WIN-EQF GOING QRT

    WIN-EQF has announced that they are going qrt after 20 years. Go to the website and click on what's new. I have used it for many years and appreciated their support and the ease of use.

    I've been using EQF for almost 15 years. It's a good thing I started using another logging program before I found out about this.

    Win-EQF Discontinued

    This is from the Win-EQF website:

    A message from Tom, N3EQF:



    At the end of 2009, sales of Win-EQF have been halted. After more than 20 years, the support effort required to maintain the logging software has by far out-weighed new purchases. It might be that the shareware concept of "test driving" the software was too generous, especially when the economy slumped. Regardless, it has been a labor of love, and I want to thank the many hams who supported me over the years. I will continue technical support of Win-EQF at least until the end of 2010. It is also still possible some other programmer(s) will take over Win-EQF and develop it further.

    73,

    I went to the site and they no longer have the product. Since 2009 !:eek:
    I had EQF-log on a previous computer but it would not run on a replacement computer I got.
    I spent so much time typing into the computer log , I had little time to get on the air.
    Went back to pen and paper logbooking.
