Thanks, Joe

This is the best and easiest. http://www.n3fjp.com/

I am a Field Day chairman, and this is the most idiot-proof logger for people that are new to contesting or logging, and we have plenty newbies every year. I gear everything for them.

If you are an experienced contester, the N1MM is superb, too. But I think specifically for Field Day, the N3JFP is the best. Nice sections map function, too.

I have been using N3FJP ACLog for a few years. Esy to use. I'll keep using it.

N1MM is a good program also and it's free.

I love N1MM. The problem with it if that newbies or non-contesters, that show up on Field Day for operating, would be overwhelmed. Otherwise, it has my first recommendation.

Yep, N3FJP is the way to go for a public FD operation (it's as simple as can be made, I think).  Our club has been using it for years.

We also used it for the CA QSO party.

One tip regarding N3FJP, download the most recent version of the Field Day application. It resolves to issue with post contest processing of the log.

Ditto on the N3FJP. I'm the station manager for Field Day for our club, and we use it. Our stations are linked through a wireless router, and all stations have the current contact log all the time. It's continuously updated that way. The program is simple to use and well worth the $ spent for it.

A good ol' Eversharp (mechanical pencil) and a pad of paper works really well and will never run out of power right when you need it to work. Since FD isn't a hardcore contest, duping isn't a big issue and if you happen to work a couple more than once, oh well. FD is all about having fun and working under compromising conditions. Our group mostly uses the Eversharp and pad method, except for a couple digital stations.

I love N3FJP for contesting, but for field day I use Squirl Field day logger. It has nice section maps and dx maps for an easy visual aid in finding the sections that you have/have not worked.  It is also free.

Enjoy!
