ARRL Field Day is upon us! If you’re still in the dark about how to use the logging software that your club or group will employ this weekend, these videos may help. For those logging with the popular N3FJP Amateur Radio Software, developer Scott Davis, N3FJP has posted an 11-minute Quick Start video that should be sufficient to get you going.
If your group is using N1MM Logger+, then check out the 26-minute video by Doug Reece, AK4AO, of his Vienna Wireless Society presentation, in which he focuses on using this free contest software specifically for a Field Day Operation. The Vienna Wireless Society also has posted an instructive PDF prepared by AK4AO.
