XMLog is an amateur radio logbook system for Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP,
Vista, 7, 8 and 10.
There is no charge for using XMLog. Permission to distribute XMLog for profit is prohibited.
Flexible Log Searching - Any log fields can be
used to select a subset of your log. For example you could select
entries for a single country for which you have sent
QSLs but haven't received responses or you could select all
RTTY QSOs on 40 meters during October, 1995.
Awards Tracking - Tracks DXCC, WAZ and WAS. The QSL
sent/received status is tracked as well as the submission status to the
award sponsor. LoTW crediting is supported for DXCC and WAS.
Reporting - For each award XMLog can produce a report showing:
- QSL sent/received status summary by band and mode.
- QSL sent/received status details by band, mode and country/state/zone.
- QSL award submission status summary or details.
- Countries/states/zones needed by band and mode.
- Critical QSO summary. This report lists QSOs that if confirmed would boost your totals.
There is also support for county hunting, IOTA, and grid square awards.
Callbook Lookups -
XMLog supports callbook lookups via QRZ.com,
WM7D.net (US/Canada calls only),
or via CDs provided by
Radio Amateur Callbook and
Important Note: As of June 2010 QRZ.COM is no longer supporting free lookups
via HTML. QRZ.COM now requires a paid subscription for lookups via XML
(see the Callbooks section of XMLog help).
Label Printing - QSL and mailing labels can be created based on
info from log entries or callbooks.
Labels can be created using standard layouts or from custom layouts you design.
Log Importing/Exporting - XMLog can import and export ADIF files or import .RES files
from K1EA's CT contesting system. Log entries can also be
exported as an Excel spreadsheet or to a CSV file (appropriate for Open Office).
XMLog can display a separate window that interfaces to Internet PacketCluster
nodes or to your packet TNC.
Packet Window features:
History - XMLog maintains a history
for the Packet Window which is saved and restored
Scripts - Scripts allow automated logins to PacketClusters
or bulletin boards.
PacketCluster Spots - XMLog can scan PacketCluster spots and
give a vocal or CW alert for needed QSOs based on the status from your log.
PacketCluster spots can also be displayed graphically as band maps
or in 'spreadsheet' style.
Rig and Rotor Memories - Memory buttons can be programmed to
set your rig frequency/mode or control your rotor.
Callbook Lookups - Callbook lookups can be made via a dialog or
by double-clicking on calls displayed anywhere in the Packet or Spot Windows.
CW Keyboard - XMLog allows you to send CW from the Packet Window
or from a separate CW Keyboard Window.
CW Messages - Pre-programmed CW messages can be sent
using function keys.
When creating log entries XMLog can get the frequency and mode
from your rig. You can also set the frequency and mode
from PacketCluster spots displayed in the various packet windows.

XMLog files - Current Version
- This .zip file contains the current version of XMLog, version 6.74
- Version 6.65 of XMLog included changes supporting an update to the ADIF specification
for QSO modes. Older versions of TQSL (the program used to "sign" ADIF files prior to uploading
them to LoTW) did not support this new scheme and resulted in error messages about illegal modes
like PSK. The current TQSL version 2.2 supports the new ADIF format, if you see TQSL errors
about unknown modes be sure you are running the latest version of TQSL.
- Version 6.69 includes a change to the LoTW support - "Can't connect"
messages were being displayed because the address of the ARRL's LoTW server was changed.
- Version 6.56 includes a change to the QRZ.COM XML support - "Can't connect"
messages were being displayed because the address of the server was changed.
