NetLogger© FAQ

What is NetLogger?

NetLogger is a logging program that can use the internet to transmit check-in information to other users of NetLogger. Net participants that are 'monitoring' the net with NetLogger receive updated information every twenty seconds.

NetLogger also has features designed to make logging check-ins easier. For instance, if you use a callbook program like QRZ!, HamCall, Sam Database, or Radio Amateur Callbook, information like name, city and state can be filled-in for you automatically.

There is also a "Club Profile" feature that enables you to store and automatically display station information not found in a callbook database, like OMISS number, 10-10 number, VIP status, etc.

Other features of NetLogger include support for importing/exporting data in ADIF and CSV format, a built in contact database that supports complex searching, automatic entry of UTC, date and time when logging contacts, viewing of upcoming net schedules on-line, ability to post your own net schedule, ability to send a list of check-ins to an email reflector, ability to print QSL labels, mailing labels and contacts, plus many other features.

Many of our members use a logging program called "NetLogger." It not only logs the contacts you make on OMISS Nets (or various other nets), but it also shows a "live" list of who is currently checked in to a given net. This is a popular utility to see who is on that you may need to work!
