And, for that matter, what about N1MM Logger? MM also supports the IARU
contest, exports Cabrillo at a mouseclick, and is rapidly gaining users
worldwide. I wrote a review of MM for the next issue of NCJ, out within
the next few weeks, and am working on a review of Win-Test. It's pretty
clear, at least from where I sit, that all of the DOS-based logging
programs are losing ground rapidly, but to single out one Windows logging
program strikes me as provincial at best.
I think the organizers' statement was an ill-considered reaction to
problems I have heard about (though not in detail) that occurred during the
last WRTC, involving CT and Cabrillo output. Sufficient time remains for
revision of this and other minor aspects of the Brazilian approach.
