Very Fine Business!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
No problems installing or setting up - of course you have to know how to install software on linux. Pretty intuitive interface IMHO. I'm relatively newly licensed ham, had as much or more work getting connected to eQSL/Lotw and everything set up. Seems to be working very well, thanks for such a great application!

Good, comprehensive logging program  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have only just started using CQRLOG, so I haven't come across any 'niggles' yet. And I only use it for listening logs. Installation on my (laptop) system which uses Ubuntu 18.04 was a breeze, just by following the instructions on the website.
Adding my first QSO details was easy. What is a little quirky is remembering that the various windows dont automatically lock, so the QSO list does not automatically lock to the top of the QSO entry window. CQRLOG would be ideal on a separate dedicated monitor, so the various windows as above plus dxcluster, grey line map etc, could all be displayed together.
All-in-all, this is a great addition to the limited number of Linux usable ham programs. As a long-term Linux user (15+ years), Linux is the only system I use on my laptop and its nice to have a fully-formed program like this.

Can't import ADIF easily  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Not easy to install, great if you have a lot of time to waste. The program does not run without installing a separate DB. Does not easily import existing logs via ADIF -- only options appear to be importing files via online DBs like clublog and hamqth.

Could not get it to run under Mint  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I tried installing under Mint - I kept getting errors that seemed to indicate that MySQL wasn't running/couldn't connect, etc. Then after installing all those packages, I still kept getting the same errors. I also got a "It looks like apparmor is running on your system..." cqrlog said that running a fix would correct this - but no, it didn't. I suppose if you're a Linux wizard, and love fiddling with terminal commands, this might be a decent program, but I could not get it to run, and online help was not very effective. Most stuff I googled assumed a great familiarity with Linux workings/terminal commands. Not user friendly for noobs.

Using it for years and years, love it!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have been using this nice logger for years and years.
Peter has done a very good job in writing this software.
Nothing compares to it, it simply contains everything you need.
Keep up the good work Peter, you're the man!

And if you run into trouble, Peter is always there to fix it.

Excellent Logger...  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've been testing Windows and Linux loggers for years and have dumped Windows a few years back as being too bloated and slow, etc.. and installed several different kinds of linux distributions. I prefer the Ubuntu distributions with the XFCE interface as it is the most responsive and runs the hardware more efficiently. Installed CWRlog latest version and using Petr's script on his web site, installed the logger flawlessly. It is a fantastic general purpose logger which is available to all. I would highly recommend this graphic logger. Thanks Petr and Martin for a Professional grade logger!!, 73's Dave,aa3ej

Perfect for Day to Day use  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Been using Linux now for just @ 18 months.
Linux Lite, an almost Win XP like distro.

cqrlog is an excelent Logbook for day to day use.
Maybe a few features missing for contests/DXepiditions users,
but ay, it's under active development, and open to suggestions.

One of the best and most comprehensive logging programs  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Cqrlog is one of the best and most comprehensive logging programs for radio amateurs. I am using it with great satisfaction on a debian testing (jessie). Some of my colleagues OM, windows users, are envious because I use cqrlog, when they, to achieve the same performaces, are forced to use privative software.
Thank you Petr and Martin its authors and developers, cqrlog you give us is really an excellent free software. Another equally important prerogative of cqrlog is that Petr listen to the desires of its users with regular updates, sacrificing his time with ham spririt. Petr, what you're doing for us OM is invaluable, personally I will try, in my limits, to give you some small satisfaction concrete, not only in words, with regular donations.

Excellent Log but not for contest  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Excellent general purpose logging software. I wish it had also the features of N1MM contest software. For contest I use Xlog. With both CQRLOG and Xlog you can key the transitter via cwdaemon.
