BookFinder Program   Page Last Updated: 07 Nov 2018


This is a small program to find the W.A.B. books held by any callsign.

It was written by Roger G0HZK.

Download the Bookfinder Program files here, then 'unzip' them to a new folder on your hard drive and make a shortcut to 'Bookfinder.exe' to run the program from.

This zip files includes:

     Bookfinder.exe - the program
     BookFinder.txt - this gives instructions on how to use the program

The data for the program is held in a file called 'Booklist.txt'. Callsigns can be changed and new books added by using a text editor, or the latest version of this file can be downloaded here:

Download the Booklist.txt Data file here, (right click and choose 'Save Target As' or 'Save Link To Disk') and save it to the same directory in which you stored the BookFinder program.

This file is normally updated each weekend.

BookFinder will search for any UK call, regardless of the region entered in the callsign box. If you enter GW4WAB, it will search for all UK variations:

For a G call, it will search for all theses prefixes:
 G, GC, GD, GE, GH, GI, GJ, GM, GN, GP, GS, GT, GU, GW, GX.

Similarly for an M call or a 2 call, all variations will be searched, regardless of which variation is entered.

The variation with the books is displayed in the callsign field.

This process does not take place if a GB call is entered, i.e. if GB4WAB is entered, only books for this exact callsign are found. This is also the case for non-UK calls.

If the bookholder is a Silent Key, the status bar indicates this.

Where an amateur has more than one call, e.g. a G8 and an M3 call, you can search for either and get the same result.
