Logbooks creations

First of all it is necessary to create logbooks set. It is a basis of all subsequent operations, only after import of QSO to thelogbook it is possible to apply other useful functions of system. The inexperienced user will create only one logbook, and stop on it. It is not the best approach, however.

CheckLog system gives flexible opportunities on selection of the necessary QSO both for formation of the list of the proceeding QSL, and for the statistical analysis of results. And you should use these opportunities. What will be if to create one logbook for one callsign? You lose at once opportunity to operate selection of QSO in other data presentations. The list of the proceeding QSL can be created taking into account the operator who was carrying out communications (the full callsign, with all keys is specified here). It is also structured according to separate logbooks (it is possible to watch selections according to all logbooks, or on some defined). Therefore we begin a configuration of structure of logbooks with definition of those options which will allow to build further selections of data taking into account all set options.

 For example: I work from a city location (R2ADF), from the village (R2ADF/A), I can use the low power of transmitting signals (QRP) for carrying out QSO. And, besides, from year to year conditions of carrying out communications can change (I constructed the new antenna, I put some new equipment, etc.). Therefore the structure of logbooks should be set so that all these features were considered, on the future.


  1. I cause a form of a configuration of logbooks, according to the menu: Set -> Logbooks configuration… The table in the top part – still empty.
  2. I create logbooks for R2ADF. I switch on the auto control – the name of logbook will be generated from a callsign.
  3. Typing Operator (callsign): R2ADF. The name of logbook is automatically formed (field Log name): R2ADF. Now I switch off the auto control. Logbook name remains without changes so far.
  4. I pass into Log name and finish to the name of logbook by year. "R2ADF (2013)". I press [Add]. So there is a first record In the table.
  5. I repeat actions of the previous point, I change only a year in the name of logbook. It gives me logbooks for every year of air activity.
  6. Now it is necessary to create logbooks for storing QSOs from rural areas. I change a call sign for R2ADF/A. I switch off auto control. The name of logbook changes to "R2ADF/A". I finish this name with the year, "R2ADF/A (2015)". I press [Add], I transfer this record to the table. Also I repeat it for other years when I worked from the rural location.
  7. In the same way create logbooks for R2ADF/QRP and R2ADF/A/QRP, obtain logbooks for every year in which I used this power mode.
  8. If I was mistaken in the description of any logbook – I put the cursor for the necessary line of the table. Attributes of the magazine are transferred to editing fields automatically. I change as it is necessary to me, and I press [Modify], thereby I transfer the changed attributes to the table.
  9. If something isn't pleasant absolutely – I put the cursor this line of the table,and press [Delete]. That is a deletion of an unnecessary line.
  10. Eventually I press [Apply] for preservation of all made changes.


  • The demanded structure of logbooks is created.
  • The set of pages of Logbooks in accuracy corresponds to the created structure of my logbooks. Each page – the separate logbook to which it is possible to import data now, for example – from the ADIF file.
  • That callsign (with all set keys) is automatically delivered to each page in compliance under whom work on air with observance of these conditions of carrying out communications was conducted.
  • During the further work it will be possible to select unmistakably those QSO which correspond to the set selection conditions (filters).
