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.
