SkookumLogger v2.3.0 now available

Bill Myers, K1GQ, released version 2.3.0 of his contest logging software SkookumLogger for macOS.

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

2.3.0 2018-08-22

This is a major update largely due to doubling the number of supported modes. Do not be shy about reporting things that don’t seem right, but do first try to find explanations for mysteries in Help. Exception: I already know that the statistics reports need attention.

New features

FSK and PSK modes are now fully supported by various windows and data objects (such as contest rules) that depend on mode. A new set of “data” messages are available for these modes, with a new editor for customizing the message content. A new window displays decoded text. Sending and receiving FSK/PSK data require a radio that has a suitable encoder and decoder accessible via the CAT connection. These features have been tested with the Elecraft K3S FSK-D and PSK-D modes and should also work with the KX3.

Added contests: SARTG WW RTTY Contest, Generic Info Contest. Also, the DX contests in the New Log chooser have been reorganized into three groups.

Misfeatures fixed

Sending the F5 CW message in a new log, or sending any CW with the YCCC SO2R Box keyer, caused a crash. Thanks K8AJS, VE3MM, GØDVJ.

The pre-fills for KH6 and KL in NAQP contests are now HI and AK instead of DX and KL. Thanks W6FB.

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