MacLoggerDX logs into your favorite Telnet DXCluster and as DX Spots
are received, tunes your radio to the spot, looks up the call and
displays the DX station on the real time grey line Map with distance
and bearing from your station.

If you decide to work the station, MacLoggerDX is ready to instantly
add the QSO and your Radio’s VFO information to your log and can swing
your beam around to work the station Direct or Long Path. MacLoggerDX
supports ADIF Import/Export which is fully compatible with eQSL.cc and
the ARRL LoTW.

MacLoggerDX looks up calls on the Internet, the new QRZ or HamCall
Online premium services, in QRZ CD Roms, it’s internal zipcode
database, Dxpedition database, the ARRL country and DX lists, your Log
Book and your User Call Book. MacLoggerDX’s internal databases are
regularly updated instantly over the Internet.

With a single key stroke you can see where this QSO is operating from
- right down to the street level using Google Maps or Google Earth.

In the background MacLoggerDX can tune your rig to a pre-arranged
schedule or scan list – interrupting the program if something of
interest pops up on the DXCluster.

MacLoggerDX automatically tracks DXCC, IOTA, WAS and CQ WAZ (Worked
All Zones) Awards and will even use the Mail application to Email you
if that rare DX location pops up on the DX Clusters. It has a Bands
Display panel which tracks activity by HF Ham Band and lets you
quickly tune to the action using a separate VFO slider for each band –
as well as VFO Stacking registers for quick recall of interesting
frequencies.

MacLoggerDX features quick selection of multiple logs, searching and
sorting based on any log field, fast and easy printing of logs,
envelopes, QSL Cards and bulk address labels, unlimited user-
customizeable memories, Drag and Drop Scan List with adjustable delay,
UTC scheduled events and drivers for over 70 popular Amateur Radio
Transceivers and SWL Receivers.
