NetLog Program for Net Control Stations

by N7LWD

Description: The NetLog program is designed to help the Amateur Radio Club (ARC) Net Control Station log net check-ins and display station data from the QRZ database. Even though this program is designed for Net Control operations, it is also very useful for the net participant to follow along during a net to see member data and/or to log member and guest contacts. It can be used on any net such as HF, VHF, UHF, or EchoLink. The program will create a roster of members just from a list of callsigns and data from the QRZ database.

Although a mouse can be used, the main logging operation has been designed to operate by keyboard input only. This will allow the operator to keep their hands on the keyboard and not have to switch back and forth between keyboard and mouse.

NOTE: ​​​​​​​To get complete QRZ data for each contact, a subscription to the QRZ XML Database is required. In 2021, it was about $30/yr.

Operation: To read about all the features and operating procedures of NetLog, download the README  file, which is also found as 'User Guide' in the program's 'About' menu once NetLog is installed.

Development: This program was developed using the Cross Platform Qt Creator IDE with Microsoft Windows and LInux Mint environments. To run this program, you will need to first download the Qt6 libraries (latest version is Qt6.2.2 in 2021) ​​​​​​​for your Windows or Linux system. This only needs to be done once. There after, you would download the executable program. Click on these downloads from the tables below, either for Windows or Linux, depending on your operating system.

System Requirements: Windows 10+ 64 bit, Linux MInt 21+ 64 bit, or Raspberry Pi OS Bullseye (32 or 64 bit). Other Linux Debian based systems are untested but might work.

History: For a history of this program updates or changes, please see the Change Log.

Feedback: If you download this program and give it a try, please report any bugs or other problems you might be having to I will try to resolve any problems as soon as I can. However, do remember that we travel in our motor home and this is a volunteer effort. Thanks for your patience.
