EasyLog features


EasyLog is a software for the Ham Radio Logging.

It is a multi-threaded software, so in respect to the previous versions, there are a lot of improvements for realtime operations, a DXspot voice announcement and up to 4 Packet Cluster connections.

EasyLog has been fine tuned for the latest operating systems like Windows 10, and runs very well on the older versions like Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 7.

In this version we focused on the user interface, that is completely new, with a lot of new options and functionalities not covered in the previous versions.
