I've been using RUMlog for more than 2 years now - definitely a nice adjunct to the radio for the DXer. I use the cluster interface and also find the grayline chart handy - esp now that we're seeing increasing numbers out of sunspot cycle-24.

I like the good integration with qrz.com and google-earth - very quick access to useful information. And I appreciate that Tom has kept the software current for quite a while now. It's a treat to run this on the Mac.

I have tried 4-5 attempts in the Mac OS-X world of coming close to DX4WIN solutions and most of the Mac programs while very nice and have excellent support (Maclogger by DogPark has some great features) none of them do a nice a job on DXCC and report summary generation as RUM log. Its interface with the radio is simply to log band, mode & freq. I picked the 706 radio for my 756pro and changed the Pro-III's address to match the 706. Works fine.

The database imported my 10,000 records slowly so have patience but once they were in it was the FIRST program to match my DXCC worked 329 at the 327 level- I know the two countries which mismatch every time. All the other logging programs were off by 20 or 22 countries and it would require a tedious hand look up and country adjustment to make it work.

Rum log is easy to use, but best is the DXcluster interface is like DX4WIN. It's announces DX, worked, needed, or new band country. Really NICE. It places the announcements in color for you to tell if you need it for band country, mode, or new one.

I can go on for a while about this program but it's just too nice to see it run on your machine. Try it out before you spend $100 or whatever $$ for other software. It works fine.

Best regards & 73

For version 4.4.10.4, the "About" dialog box does not list RUMlog's version number. Otherwise excellent program. (I also use RUMped)

RUMlog is a logging, QSL handling and printing tool, especially made for the short wave DXer, made by a DXer. Basic logging features are included for the higher bands up to 1.2 cm. RUMlog can handle an unlimited numbers of logs and an unlimited numbers of QSOs per log. An user editable, all time country database is used for automatic DXCC recognition.

RUMlog includes routines, tables and an interactive gray line map to support the user in gray line dxing. Using RUMlog you can print QSL card labels and manage your incoming paper QSLs. The Logbook of The World (LoTW) and eQSL are fully supported, and you can create files for the Global QSL service very quick. You can get different statistics for paper- or LoTW QSLs. It's just a mouse click to upload or download new QSLs to/from eQSL or LoTW.

RUMlog can use the ON6DP QSL manager database to inform you about managers or addresses and it can build and use an own manager and IOTA database, extracting the information from dx-cluster spots. Provisions are made to query the qrz.com online library.

RUMlog keeps you up to date about worked, confirmed or missing DXCCs and provides you with country lists and detailed statistics. Quick log searches or more detailed log queries are possible. RUMlog can establish a dx-cluster connection via the Internet or via packet radio. A simple terminal is integrated for a Packet Radio connection. RUMlog will separate DX-spots and alert you via e-mail or Growl when there is a ,new one' DXCC or IOTA spotted. Multiple interactive band maps virtualize activities on the air.

RUMlog can interface with two transceivers, setting the main parameter on your TRX from the logbook or vice versa. Kenwood, Elecraft, Yaesu and Icom transceivers are supported. RUMlog has import and export functions to allow exchange of log data in different formats to other logging tools. RUMlog can interface with Google Maps (Web-Browser based) and Google Earth. (Must be installed on your computer) Except the DXCC statistics, RUMlog tracks the most interesting areas of the world for the most important awards: IOTA islands, CQ zones, ITU zones, Grid Squares, US States and German DOKs.
