Hi Joe,

You're probably seeing Win-Test, which looks superficially similar to N3FJP
(and, to a greater extent, to CT).

Win-Test is the most popular logger in EU, as I understand it. Most Western
European contesters whom I know have never used N1MM, or have only a
passing familiarity with it.

I like Win-Test quite a lot, but I use N1MM when I'm a guest op and that's
what the host prefers. There are a number of large stations in the states
who are using WinTest for various reasons. Many of them switched from CT
with great reluctance, and WinTest is as close to CT as you can get in a
windows package. It's a Coke/Pepsi argument as far as I'm concerned.

73, Chris WF3C
