I also keep a loose leaf binder with various sections about antennas, computer
setups, rig settings, etc. But the most valuable logging technique I use is my
digital camera. I keep zillions of digital pix. A photo of the wiring to the
rotator control box does the job very quickly and accurately. In many cases, I
will document a complete project with digital photos - ring rotor assembly,
installing PL-259 on 1/2" hardline, the rotation loop around the mast. There
are many things that are too difficult and time-consuming to write down.
Remember bytes are free; these days gigabytes are free.
