MacLoggerDX logs into your favorite Telnet or TNC DXCluster and as DX
Spots are received, tunes your radio to the spot, looks up the call
and displays the DX station on the real time grey line Map with
distance and bearing from your station.

If you decide to work the station, MacLoggerDX is ready to instantly
add the QSO and your Radio's VFO information to your log and can swing
your beam around to work the station Direct or Long Path. MacLoggerDX
supports ADIF Import/Export which is fully compatible with eQSL.cc and
the ARRL LoTW.

MacLoggerDX looks up calls on the Internet, the new QRZ or HamCall
Online premium services, in QRZ CD Roms, on MapQuest, it's internal
zipcode database, Dxpedition database, the ARRL country and DX lists,
your Log Book and your User Call Book. MacLoggerDX's internal
databases are regularly updated instantly over the Internet.

With a single key stroke you can see where this QSO is operating from
- right down to the street level using MapQuest, Google Maps or Google

Not sure of the call you just heard ? K5ZD Super Check Partial
Database Files are there to help you out as you enter a partial call.

In the background MacLoggerDX can tune your rig to a pre-arranged
schedule or scan list - interrupting the program if something of
interest pops up on the DXCluster.

MacLoggerDX automatically tracks DXCC, IOTA, WAS, VUCC and CQ WAZ
(Worked All Zones) Awards and will even use Mail.app or Eudora to
Email you if that rare DX location pops up on the DX Clusters. It has
a Bands Display panel which tracks activity by HF Ham Band and lets
you quickly tune to the action using a separate VFO slider for each
band - as well as VFO Stacking registers for quick recall of
interesting frequencies.

MacLoggerDX can monitor, decode, lookup and plot APRS packets from
APRSServe on the Internet or a connected TNC. You can use the TNC
panel to communicate with any serial TNC to monitor and decode APRS
traffic, DXCluster Spots or to work any of the digital modes supported
by the TNC. See stations pop up on the map in real time as they
digipeat APRS packets over the International Space Station.

MacLoggerDX features popup selection of multiple logs, searching and
sorting based on any log field, automatic one-click generation of eQSL
Cards, fast and easy printing of logs, envelopes, QSL Cards and bulk
address labels, unlimited user-customizeable memories, Drag and Drop
Scan List with adjustable delay, UTC scheduled events that
automatically switch between summer, winter, weekend and weekday
schedules, an integrated CW keyer (OS X) and drivers for over 70
popular Amateur Radio Transceivers and SWL Receivers as well as multi-
radio quick-select preferences for switching quickly and easily
between multiple rigs.

MacLoggerDX can also sync your rig with the NCDXF/IARU Propagation
Beacon Network for empirical propagation status displayed in real-time
on the world map.

MacLoggerDX is fully integrated with MacDopplerPRO X for logging of
satellite QSO's and with Apple's OS X Address Book for quick adds of
lookup data.
