Works Great!  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I began using Jeff's FCC Lookup program a year ago. Now he has come out with HamCall Search which uses a MySQL database.

An advantage of using a MySQL database is it allows more complex searches. I just recently updated my club's hamfest mailing list and was able to find all the hams licensed/updated in 2007 in 458 different zip codes with one search!

You can set up the program to automatically download either the whole FCC database or the daily updates.

The only drawback to this program is if you aren't familiar with MySQL it may be a learning experience setting up the database. I'm totally unfamiliar with MySQL but was able to get it going. Plus, Jeff has been very helpful answering questions I had as well as helping set up a search I needed.

Thanks for another great program!
