SkookumLogger v2.2.7 now available

Bill Myers, K1GQ, released version 2.2.7 of his contest logging software SkookumLogger for macOS.

SkookumLogger is a full-featured contest software package suitable for the most demanding contester.

2.2.7 2018-06-20


The next update will not occur before WRTC 2018 unless a serious bug is discovered. The AS #6 team will be using SkookumLogger in that event, which occurs within the IARU HF Championship in July.

New features

The Score breakdown now has a QP (QSO points) column. Thanks WA1Z and JH5GHM.

Rate tracker now has a set of meters that display QSO points per hour for various periods. Thanks WA1Z and JH5GHM.

The SkookumNet information table now has an additional column that displays QSO points per hour in the previous 10 minutes, for each of the other network members. Thanks WA1Z and JH5GHM.

For WRTC logs, when the Refuse to log any QSOs option is selected in Logging preferences, all out-going SkookumNet communication is disabled. This is termed Referee mode — it allows the referee to monitor the log on a separate computer while preventing any accidental changes.

The Rate Breakdown Report (File menu) now presents statistics for QSO points instead of QSOs.

Misfeatures fixed

Correct mode no longer modifies the End QSO message in 2T2R mode when the radio is in the pounce submode. Thanks JH5GHM.

QSO points for the ARRL VHF contests were not quite right. Thanks WA6AZP.

The latest version of SkookumLogger is available free of charge for download here.
