  1. Hi

    I've been using Google Docs to log my HF contacts from my mobile rig for a few months now. Very good application. I think your application for a club call sign is very innovative.

    Thanks for the ideas!


  2. Also been using Google Docs for logging, but using it for SWL listening sessions. I can use the same log, whether I am in the shack or in the study (where I also have a shortwave receiver). Can log those SINPOs wherever I am. I use the spreadsheet in Google Docs

    If you use a computer based logging program consider exporting to text (or comma separated values CSV) and uploading to Google Docs or Yahoo Briefcase to store a backup. Easier than using a USB key, which have a habit of hiding when you need them.
