I am sure we have all used club log before, but I suspect there are others like me that did not realize that there is much more to it than what meets the eye.
The full potential is only realized after one uploads your log to the system. It provides the user with very detailed statistics:
Countries worked / confirmed / needed/ by band / by mode /by date etc…..
It alerts one of mistakes, logging errors and even highlights calls that are suspect or illegal (pirate) operations.
The user can decide if his logs should remain private or whether they can be viewed by other users. Personally I think the logs should be placed in the public domain; this will allow the league standings to be meaningful and will promote healthy competition amongst peers.
By uploading logs to Club Log will also enable the system to determine which entities are most wanted; in turn the DX expedition planners will use this information to provide us with much needed new ones.
It is quite amazing all this good stuff and it is for free, no strings attached…..
