Does anyone know of a simple logging program that I can use to keep track of my QSO's?  I downloaded XML Logger, but it's way too complicated.  I just want to enter all my QSL cards into a file on my computer.  I have essentially no programming skills.  Thansk for any help.

DxKeeper (part of the DXlab suite of programs) gets my vote.  It's free and pretty simple for direct input.  As a bonus you can also track awards if you want.  Don't be put off by the "suite" you can run DxKeeper alone just fine.

I use Ham Radio Deluxe logger. I cannot get HRD to interface with my radio, but I like the log. A couple nice features is once I log someone, I can right click on their name and do a "look-up" and see their QRZ info or see where they are compared to me on Google Earth.

dx labs is free but can be complicated, and AC Log is cheap but easy to use.

I would have to agree with HRD.

Even if you dont have a new fangled digital radio the software is easy to use with lots of depth. Its intergaration with QRZ online is near flawless.

But I'm a noob so...

For a commercial logging program, I like N3FJP's ACLog.  It's cheap, <$20.  And it's easy to work with.  has lot's of features that you can enjoy as you gain experience. 

But, for just logging contacts, a simple spreadsheet will do fine.  Most computers today come with Microsoft WORKS or OFFICE.  Both include very nice spreadsheet programs that can be setup as a logging application very easily.  Excell, with OFFICE, has 'form' capabilities, makeing it look like a real log program.  I'm not sure if the WORKS spreadsheet has forms or not.

Have fun...

My 2 cents worth!

I tried Logger32 and found it powerful but complicated.  More than I wanted.  I tried HRD but it was more than I wanted/needed.  I finally settled on AC Log.  It cost $20 but it is extremely user-friendly and powerful.

I forgot to mention that AC Log interfaces with LoTW EXTREMELY easily.  Another tick-mark!
