The G8PUT Logbook Project

The G8PUT Logbook Project

The Logbook Project started in the late summer of 2007, the original idea was to create a simple and easy to use logbook system. Since then I have received many requests to include additional features. The most significant are perhaps Contests and Awards. Work is progressing well on including these and many other features.
The way the project is developing is that new functions and features which have been requested are being added in no particular order. A feature which takes little time to include might be added on the day it is requested. Other features which take a significant amount of work will be made available when they are completed.
Without doubt, the most important part of the project is your support. Only by your trying and testing the program do I become aware of any problems or changes that you would like to see. For that continued and growing support I offer my thanks.
The program must be registered in order to view data more than one month old, but this can be done free of charge. Contests, Awards and other features require a small payment.
I do however welcome registration payments for the basic system that you might wish to make to support the work in progress.
73s and best regards
Chris, G8PUT

IARU and Great Circle distance

Enter your stations IARU locator in the Administration screen and when you enter the IARU of a station you work in the log book, the approximate distance is calculated and entered in the remarks column.

Delete Entry

Edit the callsign to DEL and the entry will be removed. .


Adding a new QSO using 'NET' does not log out the previous station. To log out a single station in the net, click on the blank 'finish time' box. .
