About Club Log
Introduction by Michael G7VJR
Club Log is a web-based application that analyses log files from radio amateurs all over the world. Using the logs, Club Log offers you a wide range of reports for your own benefit, and identifies large scale trends from the sum of all activity in the database.
If you participate in Club Log by uploading your log you will receive:
Recognition and Awards
In 2012 the Yasme Foundation made a special grant for equipment costs to Club Log. In November 2014, Club Log received the prestigious Al Slater G3FXB Memorial Award from FOC. In May 2015, Michael Wells G7VJR was inducted into the CQ DX Hall Of Fame. In 2019, grants totalling £8,500 were made to enable Club Log to purchase equipment, backed by NCDXF, the Yasme Foundation, CDXC and INDEXA.
Club Log Needs Your Input
One of the driving principles of Club Log is to store as many QSOs as possible, as this makes the reports and statistics more meaningful and representative. Everything in Club Log depends upon analysing real QSOs, and for this reason I am very grateful to everyone who participates.
If you have not joined yet, I warmly invite you to sign up and join the action! It is completely free. Club Log needs more participants from outside the EU and NA areas, especially.
Hints and Tips
As Club Log has evolved, some questions have come up more often than others. If you would like to read some short tips and instructions, integrate Club Log into your own web pages or software, or would like a more detailed understanding about how Club Log works, please read the documentation.
I am helped by Alan, 5B4AHJ, who maintains very high quality lists of exceptions and callsign information in Club Log. This is a huge job that requires a great deal of careful research. Currently, the list comprises 4,383 prefixes and 25,732 exceptions. These lists dramatically improve the quality and usefulness of the database. Thanks Alan.
Marios 5B4WN wrote and now maintains the innovative expedition tools, so popular with DXers the world over. These tools were first used by the Five Star DXers, and were originally inspired by features in John G3WGV's Star Software suite. Marios' work is also in evidence in the propagation tool, which is a fascinating way to explore DX paths using empirical information. Thanks Marios.
Joe WL7E joined our helpdesk as a volunteer in April 2017. Joe has been a Club Log user for a long time, and a long-term contributor to our efforts to research and define which callsigns have been used in the past. Joe's also an LoTW expert and brings his knowledge on this subject to Club Log. Thank you, Joe!
Dick W4PID joined our helpdesk as a volunteer in 2019. Dick is tireless in helping users who need advice or tips on using Club Log, and is always generous with his time. You can be sure of a patient and friendly exchange if you need his help. Thank you, Dick!
Stan, SQ8X designed the Club Log logo. His professional efforts mean that the logo is available in the various sizes and formats needed for use on web sites and QSL cards. Thank you Stan, for the quality touch! (Logo download link)
