VhfCont is a "freeware program" and is provided at no charge to the user. Feel free to share it with your friends, but please do not give it away altered or as part of another system. The essence of "Free" software is to provide personal computer users with quality software without high prices.

If you whish to register this program, you are obliged to make a donation of $20 to Ken R. Mason. Registration is not a requirement for hobby usage of this version of VHFCONT v3.0.


1.0 Introduction

The program was developed because the available VHF logging programs on IBM PC compatible computers weren't easy to use for VHF contests. I have tried many log programs and none of them were easy for me to use.

This program was primarily developed to be easy to use. It contains real time logging into a Cabrillo file format (ARRL compatible 2000) log file. Other capabilities include fast band switching, duplicate call sign look up with wildcards, local and DX grid square maps, 12 user configurable bands, 1100 QSOs per band, log file backup and verification, color text display, and much more.

2.0 Requirements

The program requires an IBM compatible computer with 580K bytes of available DOS memory, EGA/VGA compatible display (Monochrome or color), and about 1 megabyte of disk space. The program will run in the Windows environment in a DOS Command prompt screen. Tested on DOS*, Win3.1*, WIN95*, WIN98*, Win2000*, and WinNT*. The program will run on a floppy disk but due to the speed of the floppy disk it is not recommended. This program requires a text file (VHFCONT.INI) for configuration information.

3.0 Installing the program


The VHFCONT program is a DOS application. Unzip the vhfcnt3b.zip file into a directory of your choosing. Using a MSDOS window (or full screen) at the command prompt change directory (using the command CD) to where the VHFCONT program was installed.

4.0 Running the Program for the First Time


Before the program is run for the first time, it will be necessary that the VHFCONT.INI file is properly setup. Use a text editor and change the call sign, home grid square, points per qso per band, names of configurable user bands, frequencies of user bands, points for user bands, UTC time offset, and the Cabrillo file format requirements. Band name is limited to the following:

Needed band		Band name to use

6M			50
2M			144
222 MHz		222
223 MHz		222
432 MHz		432
440 MHz		432
902 MHz		903
1294 MHz		1.2
1296 MHz		1.2
2304 MHz		2.3
3456 MHz		3.4
5760 MHz		5.7
10 GHz			10
24 GHz			24
47 GHz			47
76 GHz			76
119 GHz		119
142 GHz		142
241 GHz		241
300 GHz		300
Laser			LIGHT

After the INI has been configured the program can be run. To run the program simply type:

VHFCONT[Enter]

The program will startup with the main and mostly used screen. A log file will be created or appended with the users call sign and end with the extension .LOG. Example:
KC6TEU.LOG





5.0 Loading a LOG File


The program has one optional command line option. This option allows using a different existing log file name. Do not include the extension (.LOG) of the log file. Example:

VHFCONT  JUNE2001

This will load and use the JUNE2001.LOG file. When entering new logs, the log file will be appended with the new log information using the users callsign from the log file.

If errors in the log file are detected, the program will prompt for and [ESC] key press. The erroneous log file entry will be deleted from the log.

If you need to stop loading the log due to too may errors detected press [ESC] twice quickly. Copy the backup log file to the log file to retain your original log file. DO NOT RE-RUN THE PROGRAM BEFORE RESTORING THE LOG FILE!


6.0 Running the Program


To run the program simply type VHFCONT at the DOS prompt. An optional command line option can be used to use a different existing log file.

The startup display shows local and UTC time, the local grid square map, band and mode information, and score. Example startup display:

Your home grid square is shown in the center of the grid square map in yellow.

Function keys [F1 through F9] are used to control the program. The function keys are assigned as follows:

F1 - Change the band to 6 Meters
F2 - Change the band to 2 Meters
F3 - Change the band to 222 Mhz
F4 - Change the band to 432 Mhz
F5 - Change the band to 902 Mhz
F6 - Change the band to 1296 Mhz
F7 - Change the band to next user band
F8 - Change the transmission mode (FM, CW, PH, RY)
F9 - Display the DX grid square map.

The program is waiting for a call sign and grid to be entered. To move around in the log field use the [Tab] key or arrow keys. Special keys perform as follows:

[Right Arrow] - Move cursor right.
[Left Arrow] - Move cursor left.
[Tab] - Move to the next log line field.
[Backspace] - Delete the character to the left and move left.
[Space] - Clear to end of call sign field if possible and go to the grid square field. If in the grid square field go back to the callsign field.
[Enter] - Enter log into log file (also checks for errors).
[Delete] - Clear current character if possible.


7.0 Repairing Errors in the LOG File

There is no available editor within the VHFCONT program. To repair erroneous log entries you need to exit the program and use a text editor to make the changes. Keep the same column format in the file. Restarting VHFCONT will append the log file as if you did not exit the program. Upon restarting the log file is checked for errors. Any errors in the log file will be deleted indicated by a prompt and pressing the [ESC] key. Be careful in editing the files, you can loose valuable QSO's if done incorrectly.

8.0 The Partial Call Lookup

As call signs are entered the partial call signs that match the characters that you are typing will be displayed to the right of the grid square map along with the grid square for that qso. To quickly check if a call sign has been worked, simply enter the call sign and look at the partial call sign list. When a duplicate call sign has been found use the [Backspace] key to clear the call sign just entered.

To view the time when a call has been worked, the call sign and grid square must be entered. The partial call sign will change to display the call sign, grid where worked, date of the QSO, and time of the QSO in UTC.

An example of the display is below. A partial call sign "KB" has been entered and a list of the call signs starting with "KB" is displayed in the partial calls list right of the grid square map.

9.0 The Partial Call Lookup Using Wildcards

Wildcards can be entered when typing the partial call signs on the log line. Characters used for wildcards are the '*' and the '?'.

9.1 The '*' Character

The '*' character is used to find which callsign was worked that ends with certain letters/numbers. The '*' character can only be entered as the first character of the callsign. In the following examples the callsigns below represent what has already been worked and is entered into the log file:

KC6WDA
KB6TEU
W7GGA
WA6TMA
WA5AAA
K5CBA
KA6SAA


Example using the '*' character:

Band Mode   Date    Time Callsign          Grid
  144 PH 2001-04-13 2140 *A_

Will yield a partial callsign list of callsigns from the log file that ends in 'A'. Example:

KC6WDA
W7GGA
WA6TMA
WA5AAA
K5CBA
KA6SAA

Another example using the '*' character:

Band Mode   Date    Time Callsign          Grid
  144 PH 2001-04-13 2140 *AA_

Will yield a partial callsign list of callsigns from the log file that end in 'AA'. Example:

WA5AAA
KA6SAA


9.2 The '?' Character

The '?' character is used as a wilcard for a particular character position within a callsign. Any number of '?' in any position can be used.

Example of using the '?' character:

Band Mode   Date    Time Callsign          Grid
  144 PH 2001-04-13 2140 ????A_

Will yield a partial callsign list of callsigns from the log file that have a 'A' as the fifth character in the callsign. Example:

W7GGA
WA5AAA
K5CBA
KA6SAA

Another example of using the '?' character:

Band Mode   Date    Time Callsign          Grid
  144 PH 2001-04-13 2140 ??6*_

Will yield a partial callsign list of callsigns from the log file that have a '6' as the third character in the callsign as follows:

KC6WDA
KB6TEU
KA6SAA


Another example of using the '?' character:

Band Mode   Date    Time Callsign          Grid
  144 PH 2001-04-13 2140 ??6??A_

Will yield a partial callsign list of callsigns from the log file that have a '6' as the third character and a 'A' in the sixth position in the callsign as follows:

KC6WDA
KA6SAA



10.0 The DX screen

When in the DX display your grid will be shown in the center. Example,
my home grid is CM98:

To see what the grid square is select the grid square letters (IE: CM).
Move to the top of the DX grid square map an get the 10's digit of
the grid square. The one's digit can be found at the left of the grid square.

Example, starting at the center of the map there is a CM. Moving up
there is a 90. Moving left from the center of the map that was
selected there is a 08. The grid square is then CM + 90 + 08,CM98.

Your home grid square is shown in yellow.

The DX grid square map can be moved to view other regions by using the arrow keys. This is useful during a 6 meter opening!

To exit this screen press any key (except the arrow keys).



11.0 Running the Program Using a new log file

To start the program with a new log file, rename, move, or delete the existing log file before starting the VHFCONT program.



12.0 Exiting the program

To exit the program you must be in the main display. To exit the
program press [Esc] and answer 'Y' to the "Exit, Are you sure?" question.

You will then be asked "Do you want a summary added to the log file?". Answering 'Y' will add a contest summary form to the beginning of the log file. This form is in the Cabrillo file format suitable for submitting the log file for contest entry to ARRL. Answering 'N' will not add the contest summary form to the log file.

13.0 Submitting the Log to ARRL

When exiting the program answer 'yes' to the question "Do you want a summary added to the log file?". The information in the VHFCONT.INI file will fill in the Cabrillo information in the log file.

END-OF-LOG:


Information on how to submit the log entry can be found on the WEB at http://www.arrl.org/contests/. Typically the Log file with the summary added can be e-mailed to the contest-specific e-mail address.

14.0 Multi-Op Operation

When making a log entry for a multi-op operation, each station exiting the VHFCONT program should not add the summary information. Copy all the separate log files from each station using unique names into one location. Merge the all the log files into one log using name of the multi-op station.
(example in dos is "copy log1.log+log2.log+log3.log+log4.log KC6TEU.LOG")

Once the merge is complete copy the merged log file to the VHFCONT directory. Run VHFCONT again and it will load the log file (be sure to have named the log file with the callsign in the VHFCONT.INI file). The totals will be displayed. Announce you total score on the air (if you want to brag). Exit the program answering yes to adding the summary. The resulting log is ready to submit for contest entry.

15.0 About the Program

The Rev. 1.0 program was developed using BORLAND(r) C++ V4.5. The initial program was written in 1995. Refinements for the next year were performed to add options and fix bugs. The program has been used in several VHF contests to verify it's operation. Rev. 2.0 was released with easier operation (as if it was not easy enough).

Over the years it have been found to be a very useful tool. To continue the use of the program, Rev. 3.0 was developed to support the Cabrillo file format.

For VHF+ contesting this is the only program to use!


16.0 Revision History

Revision 1.0 6/17/96 Beta release.

Revision 1.0 7/25/96 Official release. Minor fix for command
line option and revision display information.

Revision 1.0a 7/26/96 Minor fix for home grid squares in the 30's
causing a wrong grid square display.

Revision 1.0b 9/16/96 Minor fix of edit line after loading a log
file with the last entry mode being a FM or CW contact. Also added
the [Delete] key function.

Revision 1.0c 1/9/97 Changed to copy current log file upon start up of
the program to *.bak and then recreate the log file. This disallows log
file errors to propagate to future logs. Added safety exit message upon
exiting during loading of a log file. Added better log file checking
that will remove any erroneous entries. Optimized log file loading
upon starting of the program.

Revision 1.0d 9/21/97 Added frequency tracking with the mode. Each
mode had it's own frequency.

Revision 2.0 2/26/98 Added wildcard callsign look up. Added Log
file contest form summary to the log file. Upgraded the program
to handle 999999.999 Mhz (which took a lot of work!). Changed
the frequency and mode when the program starts to track the last
entry in the log file. This will allow corrections to be made
to the log file and quickly restart the program. Changed exit
screen. Added easier exiting during loading of a erroneous log
file. Created new format of log file. The program is backward
compatible with older log files.

Revision 3.0 5/24/2001 Changed log files to Cabrillo file format. Removed specific frequency as per the Cabrillo specification. The VHFCONT.INI file has changed to include the Cabrillo file support (Club, Soapbox, ARRL-Section, Operators, ETC)

Revision 3.0a 6/12/2001 Fixed a bug in the edit line while using a user band. This bug does not effect any frequency below 2304 MHZ.

Revision 3.0b 6/14/2002 Fixed a bug in the enter key routine. Pressing enter key was problematic when there was no callsign entered. The bug did not effect any log file entries. Fixed a misspelling in the log file 'OPERATORS'.
