Ever been to a field day where everyone brought different computers and kept their own separate log? Ever wonder how many contacts you have made as of right now? Have you seen one person’s computer crashed and the whole event was erased? Ever have to ask each operator which band they are on? Ever wonder if the GOTA station is being worked? Ever have I ever had to ask if anyone was on my favorite band or mode? Ever wonder if the free VHF station is in use? Want to know if one of the stations in your class is sitting empty? Have you found too many operators at your site on the air at the moment? Ever wonder how many contacts you have logged for someone else? Ever wonder if the GOTA station worked this same contact? Has someone pointed out you were a DUPE? Have you wondered if the same contact worked your event on another band? Ever had trouble tracking official visitors or participants (licensed or unlicensed)? Have you wasted your time figuring out the logs after field day?
