I wish to say a BIG THANKS to Log4OM Team (Terry and Chuck), Beta Testing team and the whole community that is supporting Log4OM forum users.

Without you, guys, Log4OM will not be the software we know:

Special thanks goes to (in random order):

Aldo VA3AG, Chuck K7PT, Claus EI7JZ, Doug W7DRM, Manuel CT1BXX, Martin VE3VEE, Peter G3ZSS, Rolf LA9FFA, Terry G4POP, Juergen DF5WW, Olaf DK2LO

If you find a bug in Log4OM it’s because they didn’t tested the software accurately 🙂

Log4OM 1.26.0 Maintenance Relase is now available for download

Release 1.26 of Log4OM is a maintenance release to fix the following issues

  • Grid reference were not being updated when call edited – Reverted to locator update on new lookup and added a lock button to the locator field for manual input
  • RST set in Net control not saved correctly – Changed format and now an active call in a net should be highlighted to update the RST from the default set
  • Added a control to prevent Net Control form closing with an active NET – Now warns on closing a net that there are unsaved calls in the active window.
  • Upload LOTW button now visible in Italian language version
  • Notes field now not cleared when adding a QSO
  • After sending spot, focus stays on spot “globe”, pressing enter opens another spot – Fixed

New features

– New locator functions in main UI: NEW GRID / NEW GRID ON BAND / NEW GRID ON MODE labels

– CAT fails on settings save
Clublog sometime not checked when adding historical QSO in main user interface
– When start time rolls over at 0000 UTC, Date does not
– QSO End date in manual mode with END REAL TIME flag checked issue
– QRZ.COM upload issue (password and special chars issue)

Happy New Year and enjoy new Log4OM release 1.24.0

The year is about to end.
Let me take this moment to thank all of you who used Log4OM daily for satisfaction and for the support you gave me in this year.
In particular, however, I would like to thank especially the people who have helped me most during this year and throughout the history of this software.
Thanks Terry, Chuck, Doug Claus, Rolf, and Peter. Thanks to all the beta testers and thanks to all those who keep alive the Log4OM forum in the way that we like the most, helping and growing together.

For those who live it, Merry Christmas. For those who do not have this day in their lands and in their traditions and to everyone a good end of 2015, a fantastic 2016 full of success and … why not … a great amount of DX’s!
