I am new to the whole computer logging software world. anyone have any suggestions as to what to use?
I am running Windows 7, 64bit. I am not looking for something to interface with the radio, just something to help me log and avoid duplicates.
I am not a contester. Mainly looking to use the logging software for Field Day and for a few special event stations throughout the year. any suggestions would be appreciated.

For contesting I use N1MM it runs on Win 7 64bit, at least in manual mode. Decent contest logger. If your serial port and radio agree with it and Win 7 then you might even be able to do some automatic frequency entry.

My other "main" logging program is Logger32 and it again runs well in manual mode on Win 7 64 bit. I haven't tried it on any of my computers that actually have serial ports. Agsin I suspect that if the USB to serial port adapter were compatible with it, it would allow radio control in a 64 bit environment.

My radio computer is running Win XP 32 bit.

I use Logic8. It is a little on the expensive side but I really like all of the features it provides.

If you want an easy to use logging program with all the features you need for daily operating, but not all the bells and whistles and complexity, take a look at N3FJP. I've used that for several years. It is not expensive but not free.

If you want a logging program with all kinds of features but lots more complexity look at Ham Radio Deluxe. It is free but very complex and takes a lot of work to get configured and stable.
