Looking into CQRLOG

I admit: I’m not much of a computer user when it comes to ham radio. Only after I bought a cute little Asus netbook I started to use one in the shack. After replacing Windows 7 by Linux, that is. Logging QSO’s and controlling radios is something I still have to look into. I had, of course, heard of Ham Radio Deluxe. Doesn’t run under Linux though, so I’m not interested.

Then Alex PA1SBM told me about CQRLOG. I must say it looks interesting enough to give it a chance.

“CQRLOG is an advanced ham radio logger based on MySQL database. Provides radio control based on hamlib libraries (currently support of 140+ radio types and models), DX cluster connection, online callbook, a grayliner, internal QSL manager database support and a most accurate country resolution algorithm based on country tables developed by OK1RR. CQRLOG is intended for daily general logging of HF, CW & SSB contacts and strongly focused on easy operation and maintenance.”

Being lazy by nature, I leave all the tweaking to Alex before I install it myself. If you want to know more about the pros and cons of this software you can follow his blog.
