|What is LogView ?
LogView is a FREE post-contest log-visualisation tool, for analysing contest performance.
It plots the QSOs in a Cabrillo-format contest-log on to one of 8 different maps by finding the position of each QSO from an online database of about 1,100,000 W/VE callsigns.
You can step through the log manually, or animate the contest at a range of speeds and watch QSOs build up in the order that you made them.
You can annotate each spot with a callsign-label.
You can keep a running count of Multipliers worked.
You can choose to display all, or selected bands.
You can filter all DX calls from your log.
You can compare your QSOs with over 140 published contest results.
You can choose to display all, or selected contest result-classes.
You can highlight gaps in your antenna coverage.
You can search the log and spotlight results on the map.
You can see position, distance, and bearing information for each QSO.
You can save the map for offline viewing and analysis.
The following contests are supported by LogView: ARRL-10 ARRL-160 ARRL-DX-CW ARRL-DX-SSB ARRL-RTTY ARRL-SS-CW ARRL-SS-SSB ARRL-VHF-JAN ARRL-VHF-JUN ARRL-VHF-SEP ARRL-UHF-AUG CQ-160-CW CQ-160-SSB CQ-WPX-CW CQ-WPX-RTTY CQ-WPX-SSB CQ-VHF CQ-WW-CW CQ-WW-RTTY CQ-WW-SSB IARU-HF NAQP-CW NAQP-RTTY NAQP-SSB RSGB-IOTA STEW-PERRY TARA-RTTY
LogView also has a separate, dedicated Results-Viewer, that lets you create a map of the published contest results for any one of over 140 different contests, and compare them to the results of other contests in the database.

There is no longer a charge for using LogView, though donations are gratefully received. I spend a lot of time creating maps and other resources for the Ham-community, all of it unpaid. If you enjoy using LogView, and would like to make a donation towards this site, please click the button below to pay via your PayPal account or credit card. Your donation is most welcome, and will go towards my site costs, and hardware/software upgrades.
