Yesterday I received a message from Jim, KØJUH with a nifty Excel workbook he designed. He call it the "NEW PJ ENTITIES WFWL SCORECARD." His goal was to have a handy reference to see which bands/modes/entities he had already contacted.
The arrival of his tool was very timely because I had put a half dozen new ones into my log and was starting to face the same issue. I was loosing track of who I needed on what band and what mode. Throw in the fact that there are multiple stations or callsigns on some of the islands added more variables to the problem.
I expanded Jim's original workbook a little bit and posted a copy to my website. If you think this tool would be helpful in your quest, you can download a copy from here: http://tinyurl.com/2v9q7ff
It's a straight forward XY grid with callsigns down the left side and band/modes across the top. You place a W (for worked) or C (for confirmed) in the appropriate cell. The far right and bottom cells show the totals for each category.
I added hyperlinks to the online logs that are being posted by some of the PJ stations. Using these links to update your scorecard will help you decide whether to re-work a station before they go QRT.
