Field Day Logging

At the club meeting there was a discussion of logging software for the upcoming Field Day. It is possible to manual log a limited number of contacts (ARRL has a paper logging form, but it needs to be converted into a “dupe sheet” for submission). But for most Field Day Participants, using logging software makes sense – especially if you plan to generate a pile-up!

The AARC has typically used the N3FJP software. However, the ARRL Field Day site also lists:

FDLog (watch web site for FD2020 software update)

N3FJP (updated for FD2020)

N1MM+ (updated for FD2020)

SkookumLogger (Mac OS) (updated for FD2020)

You can see a brief video talk about the N3FJP Field Day software embedded in Bob Pattison’s (K4DU) talk prior to Field Day 2017 at The discussion of logging software is starts around 13 minutes and 15 seconds into the talk.
