Exceptional Software!.. What Else can be said..


The Yahoo Group is Full of information and more now also.
Check it out. But for My Logging, DX-Cluster Node & Monitoring, It's about as good as it gets. Rig control for the IC-756ProIII is fine, and all the other Icoms via CI-V.

OH NO!!!

I've been an avid user since version 5 (OSX) and it has been performing nicely, and the author has been making great strides to continually improve the feature set. No complaints with the software...


Rig control i now lost! After upgrading to OSX 10.6 (Snow Leopard), the drivers for West Mountain Radio's RIGTalk are no longer available!! WMR does NOT support the Mac, and I'm lost as to what to do. Has anyone else discovered this problem, and is there a solution available NOW?

The software is great, but rig control is a must have, and under Snow Leopard, it is a have NOT--at least using RIGTalk.

Version 5.12

As you noted correctly, WMR does not support the Mac but a number of our users have found drivers for the RigTalk that work under 10.6. Ask on http://groups.yahoo.com/group/macloggerdx/

This is a fantastic piece of software, and the Author must be congratulated for making a package for the Mac that has been sorely needed.
It seems the app is updated at least twice a week !! or at least it seems that way, the only thing missing is the detail of the changes, can we please have these at the same time ?
It has happily communicated with old and new transceivers using a cheap USB-serial interface.

Last two releases b86 and b88 crash on load. Looks like the typical beta development cycle--squash 2 bugs and add a new one.

However, prior to that, the Cocoa interface is a HUGE step up. I've avoided that antiquated OS-9 version since about, forever. I bought the version 5.0 app immediately upon seeing it. I can hardly wait for the beta cycle to complete!!

I sent Don an emailed question and he responded within hours - and I'm not even a customer - yet. Sent him a thank you email, and damned if he didn't respond to that one, too. Impressive. I'll be supporting this software author, especially after reading the glowing reviews here and on other sites.

This looks pretty nice, I just wish it had support for scanners such as those made by GRE or Uniden.

There aren't any good scanning apps for OSX.

As you can see from our home page we write Macintosh software for Amateur radio not scanner enthusiasts.

MacLoggerDX will work with over a hundred Amateur radio transceivers and some HF receivers.

You should probably ask Uniden why they don't provide Mac software for the BCD996T since they do provide free PC Control/Programming software for it.

If your Looking at this REVIEW, YOU NEED the MacLoggerDX software!.. This is Truly a FINE piece of work. And the Support is GREAT!.. In One Review I see. (Are we Reviewing BETA Software)?.. Well, Yes and NO!.. There are alwas updates as to accomodate some of it's Features like DX Cluster, SWL Scheds, Etc.. And YES the Betas are posted, but the Full Version is alwas there.. You need to look at this and judge for yourself, But I upload Logs to LoTW and eQSL using it, and has some VERY nice features!.. Look at it and decide if it's for you, But I'd guess it is!..
