Reviews Summary for Kwiklog Classic
Kwiklog Classic Reviews: 2 Average rating: 2.5/5 MSRP: $Free
Description: Software for the active county hunter. Tracks the USA-CA Award from CQ Magazine as well as all the awards offered by the Mobile Amateur Radio Awards Club. There is no better sofware for County Hunters.

Kwiklog has been in business for 20 years but it is time to move on to greener pastures. As I don't have the time or expertise to continue improving Kwiklog it will only be available through the end of February 2009. I highly suggest MARAC's Logger which is claimed to be a successor to Kwiklog. More information can be found at http://marac.org God Bless - Dennis - KK7X

Product is in production.

Bugs Galore  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
This is a DOS program attempting to run in the Windows world. There are numerous limitations and the bugs are plentiful. Dennis just took over the program from the original author and maybe he can fix it up.

The MRC tracking and sending is terrible. Logs can only contain 1200 contacts of less. The program should be smart enough to minimize the number of MRC's that need to be sent but it does not. If you have not confirmed the county and you work a new station there the program will print an mrc again.

There are issues with tracking bingo and prefixes, the list is too long type here.

This program is a disaster, frustrating to use and mistakes are quite difficult to fix because of all the books etc. I will have to double check Kwiklog with an excel spreadsheet because the data in Kwiklog can't be trusted.

Don't waste your money.

Great software for the county hunter  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have been using Kwiklog for my county hunter activities since 1998. If you are an active county hunter looking for a program that will meet all of the award requirements for both CQ Magazines USA-CA Awards as well as those offered by MARAC. The program is very intuitive and is quite fast.

Kwiklog support is available at http://countyhunter.com/kwiklogsupport
