G3CWI has written a review
of contest logging software, published in RadCom, Nov. 1999. Check out
what he has to say about TR LOG!
"TR LOG is the best Sweepstakes software by FAR!!" - N5TJ
"TR LOG is the best logging program bar none!" - K3ZO
"The program just keeps getting better!" - K6LL
"The best software for automating the second radio process is TR LOG by N6TR."
"TR LOG is serious software for serious contest operators. I have
operated contests using a computer since 1986, and nothing beats TR LOG
if your goal is to maximize your potential." - N5OT
"TR LOG is the most complete contest logging program ever! Thanks for a
really great job, Tree!" - S57AD
"TR LOG saved my house from
"I'd just like to express how much fun TR LOG
has put into contesting
for me. Even with my weak code ears and little city lot station, learning
(and using) more of TR LOG's
features allowed me to have some personal
best hours during the start of the ARRL November Sweepstakes this year
that make the whole effort seem satisfying. I know I'm never going to
win SS, but staying within 10-20% of some of the super ops is my victory.
It's all due to TR LOG."
"TR LOG added about 10 dB to my enjoyment of operating most contests --
especially the Sprints. N6TR's support, both on the reflector, and in
terms of supporting wish-list items with his frequent program updates,
is second-to-none." - K2UA
"Unlike the other packages, it was possible for me to configure most aspects
of TR LOG to suit my own needs exactly." - G3CWI
"I am very satisfied with TR LOG, which is extremely user-friendly and
versatile, in particular for the CW operator!" - PA5EA
"As a little peanut in contests (no tower, wire only,) I appreciate the
'search and pounce' features/mode of TR LOG. Been having a blast..."
"There is nothing like TR LOG for having the contest exchange pattern
built into its very DNA - it has DVP and keying built right in and, most
importantly for me, integrated right into the flow of a contest exchange."
"TR LOG - I can't really imagine how it could be any easier." -
"I get a real charge out of the simulator feature in TR LOG. Using it with
the Sprint file is a great way to practice for that insanity."
"TR LOG worked great for me in the CW Sweepstakes. With a broken arm, the foot
switch I added Thursday night made all the difference, and I learned you can
type in calls with one finger." - K6KYJ
"This is a great program that makes contesting fun. While not a serious
contender in CQWW, it was a lot of fun, and EASY to get going. I've used it
in a couple of other contests now and the flexibility is phenomenal!" -
Blind hams can enjoy contesting too: "For contest logging software I have
used TR LOG with good results. I use it in DOS with a DOS screen reader
called ASAP, but I imagine it would work fairly well with JAWS For DOS.
It also seems to work in a DOS window with the JAWS for Windows screen
reader. I used it on a laptop in the IOTA contest, and it was quite easy
for me." - K7RX
"In an age of over-hyped products, few, even in the Amateur Radio community,
live up to their advertising. TR LOG is one of the few products that I have
bought recently that has lived up to its billing. I am happy I chose TR
LOG over the competition." - W8VJW
