Introduction & WAB Logging software question

Postby Dave G0VTU » Tue Feb 16, 2016 12:38 pm

Hi all, I'm Dave G0VTU, located in Tamworth, Staffs, WAB Square SK20...book number 21431 . Sorry to ask a dumb question as WAB is all new to me, although I have been listening often on 7.160 most days and getting the hang of it. Can I ask how people log contacts, worked squares and book numbers?. I've been looking around for logging software specifically for WAB use but to no avail. I do use HRD with the logging program, but I don't think there are areas where you can specifically add Squares and book numbers. Any help greatfully received.

There is an "Award Scheme" option available in HRD that will do WAB Small & Large Squares (and WAI) but I doubt it would be possible to add book numbers very easily. I've become disillusioned with proprietary LogBooks and have started to write my own Log Book / WAB Awards Program. The G8PUT Logbook is probably your best bet, but my view is that it is very much a "work in progress" item; at £20 maybe worth a try?

Thanks guys, I have purchased the G8PUT logbook a couple of days ago, but still waiting for the registration code at the moment.
