I have never used logging software but now that i am going to return to ham radio i have decided to try it.......I downloaded dxlab/dxkeeper but i am having some issue? When i open dxkeeper to the log QSOs tab it will not let me enter any callsigns, names, mode, qth, etc....I can enter tx&rx freq. So i am sure i have something set incorrectly? Any input would be appreciated?
When logging QSOs in real time, you'll find DXKeeper's Capture
window convenient. To display it, click the Capture button on the Main window's "Log QSOs" tab.
To log a QSO, type a callsign into the Capture window's Call box, and strike your keyboard's Enter or Tab key. Use the appropriate boxes to capture your frequency (in megahertz), mode, signal reports, QSO partner's name and QTH, etc. When you're ready to log the QSO, click the Capture window's Log button.
If you're using Commander
to control your transceiver, the Capture window will automatically track its frequency and mode.
You can increase the height of the Capture window to reveal additional boxes
or you can decrease its height to save screen space.
There's a set of keyboard shortcuts
for navigating from box to box and logging QSOs without lifting your hands from the keyboard.
If you're just getting started, I suggest taking a look at these introductory articles:
