I want to begin a discussion on "How do you keep track of your DX Loggings?"
Do you use a spreadsheet, notebook, database etc?
How about your DX recordings, do you keep a list of your recordings via the
same log method or something totally different. Are your recordings tied
back to your DX logging?
Also, what do you record as your logging entry?
Date, Call, City , Time etc. Do you break your loggings out be cities you
have lived in?
How do you summarize your totals by Country, then state, new stations, call
I will start it off.
When I started DXing Broadcast stations in 1975 I used an accountant
notebook with the many columns per page.
I would record, date of logging, Call sign, city and Country, then
Frequency, time and if I was chasing a QSL, date I received a reply from the
station. I had a column for comments of the logging and location I heard the
station. I then discovered MS Access database and learned how to create
databases. I converted all my notebook loggings to my newly created access
database, which has been a blessing indeed. Using a database has made
summarizing my totals so simple. Within the database I have linked all my
recordings back to the particular station log.
I have done the same for my shortwave loggings also!!
This is my "Geeky Method" but works for me!!
Who's next ....to discuss their method?
