"DAMN FINE PIECE OF KIT!!!!"
Version: RUMlog 4.9
Price, developer does continually work at refinements/suggestions and is updated, works very quickly, if you are a Mac user then you know there ain't much software that does all this-so support the developer, real 'Swiss army knife' product, and yes it does have everything which the other reviewer has noted so I'm not going to duplicate, layout is logical and well thought out for the user, great setup preferences...
Doesn't interface to my Drake 7 line series!!
There are few products for amateurs using Macs (Aether, MacLoggerDX), but after using this product it does a great deal to satisfy the serious amateur. True, MacLogger may have some other advantages, but you do pay good money for it too. In fact even after using MacLogger, I have always kept RumLog going too, in parallel.
As I am not using gear that can be interfaced to any application, then I would have to say that RumLog would come out in front as a manual logging program.
There are also a myriad of products for PCs, but RumLog is up there with the best of 'em, in my opinion. Linux has some fine offerings too.
Don't be put off because it's free. Oh yeah, there is no time limited features or stuff either, because of the price. This is an excellent example of using the Mac interface to create a very useable product.
Have a look at the other product I've used too RumPed. Whilst it is a contest log, it is another excellent product, as you can import the log back into RumLog.
Look, let's face it - there is not a lot of stuff specifically for Macs, and I reckon that Tom, DL2RUM deserves credit for creating great products.
You really have to give RumLog a go.
"Excellent program and Great support"
Version: RUMlog 4.3.2
Paper, LoTW and eQSL tracking.
Immediate indication of what bands and modes you have worked or confirmed a country.
Color coded indications in the Packet window of mode/band/country worked or confirmed.
CW integration with Winkeyer, microham or K3.
None that I can think of.
In addition to being an excellent logger one of RUMlog's real positives is it's ability to supply reports on QSL's either Paper, LoTW or eQSL.
Program makes it very easy to update your LoTW account and tracks confirmations.
Also, the DX Spot window color codes Mode/Band/Country worked or confirmed.
Tom, the author, is quick to respond to problems and to add features.
Generates files to upload to LoTW and eQSL marks the QSO's as confirmation sent and also easily downloads and marks confirmations by direct connection to the LoTW server, no need to download a file.
"Excellent Logging Program"
Version: RUMlog 4.2.2
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Great logging program.
Even though I use MacLoggerDX as my primary logger because it supports my radio and a few other reasons, I have used RUMLog for a couple of years to maintain my log database and to check previous band/mode QSO's
Great sorting and tracking features as well as a terrific Packet Cluster interface that alerts you to needed spots in a variety of useful ways.
Also, it's integration with Logbook of the World is better than anything I have found on the Mac.
The ability to look at worked/confirmed stats for Paper only, LotW only or combined is very well done.
Also integrates well with eQSL.
Terrific and responsive support.
