The MARAC Logger program is designed to replace the once very popular Kwiklog series of logging programs. Gene, KD9ZP, took on the project and has completely rewritten the program using Microsoft Visual Basic and MS Access databases. This effort has produced a very stable and accurate logging program for use by MARAC members to track their county contacts for MARAC awards. All County Hunters should have this program.
There is a team of volunteers who help Gene with enhancements to the program. There are always improvements that can be added to the program. As Gene has the time, they are considered and added.
Of course Logger can also be used from entering your first contact. It can also import the standard ADIF export from your current logging program. ADIF imports can also be added to an existing Logger database from within Logger.
If you are a Kwiklog user, WQ7A will volunteer to do a preliminary investigation of your Kwiklog data. This will give you a list of bad data in Kwiklog that would best be fixed by you in your Kwiklog program before a final conversion into the Logger database. Just Zip your 50 state files and ALL your QSO files from your Kwiklog folder and email them to WQ7A@ARRL.NET It may take more than one round trip before your data is fairly clean. We STRONGLY suggest this. Get in touch. After this is done, you will be ready to do the Kwiklog conversion from within Logger.
