    Default Survey - What type of logbook do you use?

    I'm just curious. Do you use a paper or electronic logbook? Please answer on SurveyMonkey - Thanks

    Hi Pete, Thanks for taking the survey, didn't know you were a Mod. Haven't heard you on the net for a while, but then again I've not heard the net for most of the summer, but listen in most weeks.

    Just one question? Two answers - so I couldn't complete it. I do not keep a log at all. It's not a requirement nowadays, although most active hams keep one, but not all - like me. When I returned to ham radio and looked at how much had changed, I saw this in the licence.
    The Licence does not require every licensee to maintain a log of all transmissions, though Ofcom may require certain aspects to be recorded in a log from time to time.
    I imagine the requirement for them to ask for a log probably is interference related.

    Two options don’t give enough variability, so didn’t complete survey.

    I log via QRZ, but have this linked to LOTW as you get more confirmations through there. I then export an .adif which I import into my competition sites, such as FT8DMC.

    I also keep a paper log, and have done from the start, but this is more of a “continue as I started” than necessity.

    Kind regards,



    Phil

    There's just one question and 3 possible answers, which one is the best fit for you. If no answer fits you, leave it. Simple.

    Alan, Not a net person really and couldn't put up with not hearing the net control so gave up.
    Also fancied a break from the club it was getting a bit of a trek across there, gave about eight years on committee still help out with their special events even tho not a member anymore!
    As for Mod spend a lot of time here and used HamTests to get through the exams so my way of giving something back.
    Used to run a motorsport forum and website before I retired so had plenty of practice!!

    Big break in my participation of the hobby, so still using the same paper book as I started with in 1984 - returned to the hobby to discover that log-keeping was no longer mandatory, but I still prefer to keep contacts in the book.
    Current radios: VHF/UHF: 2 x Baofeng 2/70 Handhelds. VHF: Kenwood TR9130 2m multimode. HF: Kenwood TS930S-AT
