I use the online resources that have already been posted. But these aren't 
the same as having a real printed calendar to hang on the wall (right next 
to where the "kitchen passes" are administered). CQ Magazine publishes a 
calendar that is suitable for scheduling your operating events: 

I operate contests for fun so I might spread my time across several contests 
that are running over a weekend. Trying to keep track of the different 
operating opportunities for each of them led me to create an Excel tool. I 
call it the "Contest Visualizer". You can download a copy from here: 

It's based on the data from the WA7BNM perpetual calendar and displays the 
information using a horizontal time scale with colored bars to represent 
contest "on times." Contests are listed chronologically from top to bottom. 
It's rudimentary but functional for the intended purpose. I will extend the 
dates into 2010 in a future release. You can add specific contest 
information to the scheduler if you want.
