Fast Log Entry (FLE)
April 24, 2016: FLE 2.6 available
Fast Log Entry (FLE) is a text editor and logger to enter QSO data as easy and fast as possible without redundancy, either in real-time or off-line. This tool is useful if you couldn't bring a logging computer on your DXpedition or if you need a simple but efficient logger.
FLE consists of two main panels - a text editor with customizable context-sensitive highlighting and a QSO data grid. The grid shows the completed QSO records, they can be saved as ADIF file (Amateur Data Interchange Format) or in Cabrillo format.
Some of the features are:
- Regular logging, Contest logging and WWFF logging (FLE is supporting the World Wide Flora and Fauna in Amateur Radio Program)
- Contest logging with consecutive serial numbers
- Off-line or real-time logging
- Interpolation of log times
- ...and more
