SOTA support in detail

The latest version of this free logging software Log4OM provides full SOTA support for chasers, activators and S2S

We decided to not just include the new ADIF fields for SOTA, as most other software developers do, instead we enhanced the basic ADIF fields by including many extra features:

• The full summit list of all SOTA Associations and all of the summits worldwide enables instant SOTA reference lookup whilst adding the QSO.

• The user can add updated summit lists downloaded from SOTA at any time.

• SOTA CSV export already correctly formatted for instant upload to SOTA, no external software required for conversion.

• Import of downloaded SOTA CSV’s from the SOTA site can be directly imported into the Log4om logbook and existing QSO’s updated with the SOTA data.

• By clicking a SOTA reference in Log4OM the SOTA Associations, Regions and summits can be viewed in interactive maps online in the "SOTA Mapping Project" The maps provide a wealth of information, from summit positions, activation status and panoramic views, real-time spots of SOTA activations, user-defined tracks and routes to users' favorite summits, and much more.

• Supports Chasers, Activators & S2S activities.

• Full statistic analysis by band, mode, association(s), date range and worked/confirmed status for all three SOTA activities.

• DX Cluster can be filtered for SOTA activities

• Log4OM cluster alerts can be configured to alert of a SOTA activity by email, push alert to mobile phone of tablet, audio and on screen warnings

New LOG4OM software release G4POP on 19/7/12
I assisted Simon Brown to develop HRD for seven years but when the program was sold and became a commercial entity I started looking for a worthy replacement.

Six weeks ago I found LOG4OM which is written by a brilliant and enthusiastic Italian programmer and radio amateur Daniele Pistolatto IW3HMH and I was astounded at how far he had progressed is such a short period of time.

Fortunately Daniele was happy to have some assistance with developement so my good friend K7PT and I have joined forces with him to drive the software towards being one of the top FREE ham radio software packages available.

The latest version of LOG4OM has now been released here

Here are the release notes for fixes and new features implemented since the last Beta release
