Hands on with LCARA
November 16, 2020

Presented by Chris KY4CKP

Logging of Amateur Contacts world wide, and locally.

Several methods for logging contacts were mentioned such as, Excel spread sheets,
Pen/paper, and digital
using software or web pages.

Digital modes discussed were QRZ.com, Log Book of the World, Log4OM, N1MM

The Log4
OM version 2.9  was main topic--software needed to interface with radio
including Omnirig.

Chris, walked us though the set up, data base and use of this program--one and done it
interacts with QRZ and Log Book of the World.

We saw actual interacting between the computer log program , the radio and how the
system works.

One of the questions asked was could we set this up in the Comm Trailer for N4LCA to
use with Field days, Pota's etc.

Yes this can be done, looks like this will be added to the Comm Trailer soon.

If you missed this presentation, you missed out on a good program to aid you with
logging contacts.

We had 7 present including Chris.

73 to all and a big Thank You to Chris.
