Excellent QSO/QSL management service Time Owned: 0 to 3 months.
I'm fairly new to HF and stayed away for Clublog as it appeared to be for "serious" DXers and DXpeditions. I've used a mix of QRZ, eQSL and LoTW until now.

But frankly if you're at all interested in QSLing, even occasionally, or keeping track of the countries/zones you've worked - then Clublog is for you. The interface is clean, upto date and user-friendly (and some of the services mentioned above are far from that, despite their usefulness).

It syncs incoming and outgoing QSOs well with LoTW, and you can get confirmations from there. You can import ADIFs from other logging applications too. It also allows you to request buro or direct QSLs from your contacts. Direct QSLs involve a small fee payable by Paypal, which goes to the DX station, not Clublog. So no more messing with SASEs.

Having played with Clublog for a few days, I can already see the benefits in managing QSLs and contacts. Impressive!

Only Twelve Reviews! Time Owned: more than 12 months.
I expected to see over a hundred reviews of Clublog, we all use it, and now wonder how we lived without it! A piece of art for DXers and DXPeditions.

VERY Cool program Time Owned: more than 12 months.
This thing is kind of like a Makita drill/ start off wondering why do I need this thing---Six months later, you wonder how you ever got along without it. Seriously, I just keep finding more uses for the program. They seem to really be on top of what's going on. More DXpeditions are taking advantage of their services and the implementation of OQRS system was a stroke of genius. To top it all off....It's FREE.

Excellent Time Owned: more than 12 months.
For those who upload logs this service is phenomenal. For the rest of us it is also phenomenal but in other ways. More and more DXpeditions are making use of the online log facility and the display and stats are great. I subscribe to the listserv and get a lot of entertainment out of the complaints, problems, comments and rapid returns. The complaints and problems are fixed very quickly by Michael, G7VJR, the programmer, who is a wizard at fixing bugs and improving the program. LoTW could take a page out of the Club Log experience and fix some of their problems.

Also, you can find a lot of interesting DX history in the Club Log files and comments on how call assignments have changed over the years in some countries, along with examples of old QSLs---very interesting! Alan, 5B4AHJ, is the man behind this excellent part of Club Log.

There is a crew of expert volunteers behind Club Log and they make it a good experience for all users. They are polite and responsive and that is one of the things that makes Club Log a success as a DX tool and an enjoyable environment to hang out in.

See results instantly Time Owned: 0 to 3 months.
A great tool for logging DX. Run a script on your QRZ page for a snapshot of your up-to-date contacts.

Great tool Time Owned: 0 to 3 months.
Very robust. It offers many tools such as log searches and propagation forecasting. It also caught some data discrepancies I made in my logging program. You should check it out.

Excellent DX tool... Time Owned: 3 to 6 months.
Excellent DX tool. Forces you to be more accurate in your logging program. The old saying "garbage in; garbage out" holds true.

I enjoy the program very much and thanks to the guys that work this project.

Join it and enjoy. Time Owned: more than 12 months.
As soon as you have joined Clublog you will find it very easy to use. The only thing you have to do is upload a full .ADIF file occasionally to enjoy the many features of Clublog as described.

The more wordwide users there are, the more accurate the info gets on things like "Most wanted", propagation and the like.

In one sentence: Almost effortless and so much (DX) information.

Slick!!! Time Owned: 0 to 3 months.
Great idea, and well executed.

Only downer is the sometimes very slow server it seems to live at.

A wide range of log analysis and expedition tools Time Owned: more than 12 months.
Club Log is a web-based application which uses a database to analyse amateur radio log files, which are uploaded in the common ADIF format. Using the logs, it is possible to build band-mode league tables of amateurs' QSOs, provide efficient log search tools and create most wanted lists for DXCC entities (both over all time and in recent history, or by mode for example).

Also, Club Log can give back to its users the ability to find "wanted" DX spots, take part in competitions with other members of the same club, and provides other analysis of logs which might be hard to do with normal logging software, such as identifying and suggesting QSL opportunities or proposing popular LoTW stations to work in rare DXCCs. One particularly interesting feature provides a year-by-year break down of your QSOs and preferred modes, again all just by uploading an ADIF.

Club Log is also DXpedition tool, helping with the planning by exposing rare bands and modes, and providing real-time leaderboards, log search and online QSL tools for expeditions to easily plumb into their web sites.

Club Log started as a project within the Chiltern DX Club (CDXC). It now has a worldwide user base, however, and there are around 6 million QSOs stored in the database. If you are working your way up the DXCC lists, or even if you are just interested in seeing some statistics on your ham radio log, then head to
