WriteLog Contest S/W for Windows Ver-9 is now finished.
1. Ver-9 has had a face lift to it's viewing screen docking and undocking
allows much easier viewing of: Band Summary, QSO Window, Status Bar,
Check Call, Rate, Great Circle Bearings, Super Check partial, Band Map,
Status Bar, Search and pounce memories, on one screen.
2. Super Check partial: Call signs have been color coded, Calls than have
been worked on other bands are now Green, Calls that are dupes on the
band you are on are still Red, calls that haven't been worked are Gray.
3. Correlations of Ver-9 is now Check Call, showing every qso with a single
station and serial number etc on each band.
You can also have selected RTTY or CW/SSB call sign in memory selected.
4. Split Screen: Seeing all of the log is impossible unless you have a very
large monitor. Split Screen allows you to see the most needed parts or
breaking the log down into two parts for viewing. It's real handy
especially for WAE test seeing QTC's etc..
5. Beam Headings: You now have Direciton, Distance, Reverse Bearing and your
long path Direcion.
6. Auto CQing: Now works like CT's, Auto CQ mode stays active. ALT+T sets
auto CQ mode. ALT+T turn if off. The status bar also shows CQ speed in CW
mode and whether Auto CQ is on or off. In RTTY mode it shows ON or OFF..
7. The Packet window: Has an option to set it to single opr, or can be setup
for Multi/Single where run station gets one band and the mult station get
all the other bands. Multi/Multi's can get spots for the band they are on.
8. All Ver-8 (.CNT files) can be transfered to Ver-9 (.WL files)..
9. Most important: WriteLog supports two radios in both RTTY & SSB with only
ONE Sound board 16 bit or better..
Price: All previous users can upgrade to Ver-9 for $25.00..
There is a Dayton special price of $50.00.. This starts now and will last
until after Dayton. After Dayton the price will go up somewhat for new
users.. The $25.00 upgrade price will stay the same..
WriteLog has helped introduce many operators to the fun of contesting on
the digital modes. It's support for RTTY using any Windows compatible
sound card makes joining the RTTY game as simple as plugging in a few
audio cables, and WriteLog can "print" almost anything! Head to head
tests with other software show WriteLog performs the best under all

game as simple as plugging in a few audio cables.
