- Club Log is a free database where you upload your log and its contents becomes statistics on worked DX for you.
- It allows you to see your current DXCC counts and amounts from last upload.
- As a member of SDXA, it compares your counts with other members and SDXA against other DX clubs.
- Many DXpeditions and other DX use OQRS through Club Log for obtaining QSL cards from them.
- It questions any weird contacts you may have to resolve them as either errors or new information for the large datebase on exceptions found in calls from long ago.
Here is a link that Chuck KI7DG wrote a while back: CLUBLOG LINK.
The problem is that SDXA was dropped from Club Log as a group (SDXA) because some of our members did not follow the Club Log Rule that you MUST UPOLAD AT LEAST ONCE PER YEAR your log to Club Log to stay active. We have dropped below the 15-member minimum. In order to get back on, you are requested to review your situation and upload again if you have not done that in the last 12 months. And if you have never been a member, join. Again, its free and you just need your call and a simple password.
In my case, yesterday, I uploaded again my entire log of some 20,000 QSOs. Took about two minutes. It is in the program called DX4WIN and has all my contacts from 2001. Only three new contacts were added out of that database since my last upload, but one of them was Libya, my 300th country. Now, in my Club Log database, it shows that correct count. Uploading is simply making an ADIF file of your log and uploading. And if you are still manually logging, well…..
Here is the CLUB LOG LINK for their site.
Club Log also generates a Most Wanted List from all the logs uploaded. Here is a sample.
