Swisslog competitors - pro vs cons ??
Any opinions or hint about other logging software you have tried out ?

Personally I have tried VQLOG (shareware), but decided to stay with SWL, maybe because it match better my needs.

Pro:
- more statistic
- more graphical printout (worked square, worked area, etc)
- more up-to-date functions (CAT, rotor, software, etc...)

Cons:
- Bad / not intuitive GUI
- GUI / window not configurable
- Lot of mouse clicks

Let say I do work specially 6m and higher band, so maybe I don't need what a HF guru needs !

Ciao, Pietro

At a cost of $200 for a "lifetime license" VQLOG can hardly be called shareware!

I think I've tried just about every logging program out there. None of them can print a decent QSL card, the way I want to. That alone is reason enough to stick with Swisslog.

Well,
when deciding to finally go for electronic logging I had a look into:

- Swisslog: Finally made it.

- Log4OM: Integrates big amount of functionality, but the whole GUI is not really appealing to me. Looks quite old-fashioned.
- Hamoffice: Seems a very good product, but why should I pay an annual fee, if a SW which I can get for free fulfills all my needs?
