Hi Bob,

I just responded privately to another person and it answers your questions -

To sort out the reporting :

Post Contest I have subscribed to www.qscope.org<http://www.qscope.org>

We have found throughout the reporting of N1MM anomalies in Multi ops - such as operators listed under the Runs report and not listed under the rates report

The rates in different parts of N1MM are not consistent - if you are using 1, 10 and 60 Minutes then this should be the only standard.

The Max rates report in a Multi op gives the callsign of the first operator in the sequence - some slight extra coding to show the individuals would be awesome

This is not a new occurrence as both myself and Phil have been asking for this to be rectified for some time now.

While we may not move on we are looking for alternatives.

To us operator management is a primary concern:  Most of the downfall is live

We would like to see a Bum in chair time as per Writelog even with negative for those not on air ie how long off the rig.

Looking at other packages is very interesting ; for example on feature of WINTEST is an integration with HAMCAP that forecasts prop to arrange skeds with a Multiplier

This feature is called QSY Wizard http://docs.win-test.com/wiki/Menu:Windows#QSY_Wizard

The search continues

Score at this stage from private emails

N1MM - 2

Writelog - 3

Wintest - 5

Hi Trent,

A small group of us Arizona Outlaws have been doing M/2 for over 7 years here. (N7AT and several other calls). We have used N1MM/N1MM+ that entire time. We find the networking ability quite good, very robust, and the reporting suiting our operation.

What about the N1MM reporting is inadequate for your needs?

Looking around at various contest Loggers and considering a change - We have used N1MM for some time but the reporting leaves me cold.

We mainly operate Multi Operator - so need good networking, good comms, and good reporting for each operator.

What do you use ? Why ? and what are its best features ?
