PotaLog-800.jpgPotaLog Program for POTA Logging Activity

by N7LWD

The PotaLog program was written to help the POTA park activator log contacts and display contact data from the QRZ database. The program will handle ‘nfers’ (multiple parks at one location) for both the activator and the Park-to-Park (P2P) contact. The program will create a proper POTA “*.adi” log file with proper file name for submittal to the POTA regional representative for each park activated.

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).

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 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.

If you download this program and give it a try, please report any bugs or other problems you might be having to }2k\ehI^WLia`/]#[LH40$!%QJ5rPF~ 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.
