I have added Japanese and UK band plans to MacLoggerDX which you can  
select with a popup in the Bands Panel.

MacLoggerDX can not yet handle the 'gap' in the Japanese 160 meter

able to add new band plans as we move forward.

Thanks for the suggestion.

There is a screen shot here...


and the beta (v1.4.1b26) is posted here...
