Contest Logging Software for Amateur Radio Operators
           About the WB3W Logging Programs  
These Logging applications were originally written specifically with the visually impaired Amateur Radio operator in mind, but can be used by anyone interested in a basic, easy to use, logging program for the current supported contests, with full LAN networking built in.

All fonts are much larger than normally available, especially the main data input fields, where you would log your contact exchange. The default text colors are a high contrast yellow on black, but there is an option to allow each operator to customize these to their own individual color preferences.  

Additionally, there is another feature that can be turned on to allow voice annunciation upon entering the data input fields.

And, if you run Mobile these large fonts really make a difference....

            Sample Logging Screen  

Here is a view of the main logging screen from the Mid Atlantic QSO party program.  All three of the current logging programs have this same general look with the main difference being the exchange information, and the scoring summaries on the bottom of the screen.

The program was designed to be used at a 1024 X 768 screen resolution, for maximum benefit of the larger fonts, but includes an add-on utility that will also allow it to automatically resize to 800 X 600 or other screen resolutions for use on older monitors or laptops.
