Excellent package WITH Logging reports, DXCC Summary  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have tried 4-5 attempts in the Mac OS-X world of coming close to DX4WIN solutions and most of the Mac programs while very nice and have excellent support (Maclogger by DogPark has some great features) none of them do a nice a job on DXCC and report summary generation as RUM log. Its interface with the radio is simply to log band, mode & freq. I picked the 706 radio for my 756pro and changed the Pro-III's address to match the 706. Works fine.

The database imported my 10,000 records slowly so have patience but once they were in it was the FIRST program to match my DXCC worked 329 at the 327 level- I know the two countries which mismatch every time. All the other logging programs were off by 20 or 22 countries and it would require a tedious hand look up and country adjustment to make it work.

Rum log is easy to use, but best is the DXcluster interface is like DX4WIN. It's announces DX, worked, needed, or new band country. Really NICE. It places the announcements in color for you to tell if you need it for band country, mode, or new one.

I can go on for a while about this program but it's just too nice to see it run on your machine. Try it out before you spend $100 or whatever $$ for other software. It works fine.

Best regards & 73

Good job Tom  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Thanks to the previous review, I found the site for this free download. Good to see some good software for MAC OSX. Well done, Tom, you did a good job. I downloaded a copy last night and have been playing with it. Very easy to use - and quick entries, just a second or two to log a contact. It is still very new, so I'm sure Tom will add more features to this great program that already does great logging, supports awards, rig control (for some rigs - more rigs getting added), and more.

Nice feature ladden at the right price.  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Not many logging software for the Mac X.
First, the price is right,
secondly, it has many features and some
rig control. No need to enumerate the feature
that can be read from the link above.

The author is very responsive with any
questions and/or suggestions.

Check out his other programs for the Mac X.
