uLog – a new, simple logging program from M0PZT

For the last year or so, I’ve been using PZTLog written by Charlie, M0PZT, which I have found excellent and a pleasure to use.

Charlie has just released uLog (Micro log). As its’ name suggests, it’s a stripped down logging program for people who don’t want anything complicated.It seems to do just that! I downloaded it (like PZTLog, it is free) and installed it in seconds.

It is compatible with the PZTLog database too – so I found that I could point it at my existing PZTLog database file and log QSOs successfully. I checked, too, that I could go back in and use PZTLog – it’s all fine. Some of the database fields used in PZTLog are not populated in uLog – but remember – the point is simple logging!

I like the simplicity of the logging window – which you can just have running – and tab over to the application from whereever you were, when you need to log a QSO.

The Flexi-input is a neat feature too (also in PZTLog) where you can enter the QSO information and uLog will have a go at working out which field it wanted to put it in (eg 59S will place 59 in the RST-Sent field). Maybe it was me, but it didn’t quite get the locator right and wanted to put it in a WAB field – but hey, details…
The tabs across the top allow access to the Log Viewer where you can see a list of previous QSOs, as well as extract them to ADIF files (should you want to upload to eQSL, Clublog or whatever). I liked the colour coding of QSOs by mode, too!
The message is simple – if you want a simple, fun and easy to use logging program for the Windows platform, you should look at uLog. 

Update In normal, super-responsive Charlie style – he took a look at the issue I mentioned regarding the Flexi-input and the locator/WAB issue and has amended it. Thanks, Charlie!
