NetLogger is a logging program that can use the internet to transmit check-in information to other users of NetLogger. Net participants that are ‘monitoring’ the net with NetLogger receive updated information every twenty seconds.

NetLogger also has features designed to make logging check-ins easier. For instance, if you use the QRZ XML service, information like name, city and state can be filled-in for you automatically.

There is also a “Club Profile” feature that enables you to store and automatically display station information not found in the QRZ database, like the USTAW ID number, F.I.S.T. or 10-10 numbers, Your status, etc.

Other features of NetLogger include support for importing/exporting data in ADIF and CSV format, a built in contact database that supports complex searching, automatic entry of UTC, date and time when logging contacts, support for LoTW and eQSL uploads, plus many other features.

Winlink is a worldwide radio email service that uses radio pathways where the internet is not present, and is capable of operating completely without the internet–automatically–using smart-network radio relays. Winlink provides its users email with attachments, position reporting, weather and information bulletins, and is well-known for its role in interoperable emergency and disaster relief communications. Licensed Winlink operators/stations use both amateur radio and government radio frequencies worldwide. The system is built, operated and administered entirely by licensed “Ham” volunteers
