Log4OM is free software developed by Daniel Pistollato IW3HMH (team Terry G4POP, Chuck K7PT, Claus EI7JZ, Rolf LA9FFA, Peter G3ZSS) for the complete management of the station log. The application is developed in C # and is compiled for any Windows operating system, XP and above (Vista, Windows 7 & 8 ++++).
The software will only run on Linux machines using the “Wine” Windows emulator or Mac OS X machines using “Parallels” emulation software or using “Boot Camp” The Log4om team do not provide support for the program when its being run on Linux or Mac machines.
Log4OM is designed to be easy to understand, as well as easy to adapt, to the requirements of the individual. QSOs are personal and so no constraints have been made to prevent the user from accessing QSOs (Including by direct access to whatever database source is used).
Each set, list or database of the program is stored in text files or XML (with the exception of the configuration file which for security is saved in binary encoding with a BASIC 64). The information is saved in the configuration files and can be recovered by using a special button on the settings screen.
This approach allows the user to modify the list of contests, operating modes, bands, band plans, views of the QSO and all other available information. This information is freely accessible and usable by other programs, and can be updated independently by the user if required.
The database used for storing the QSO is SQLite, which is open Source. Free tools are available to read and write data in the database on the Internet.
The more advanced users may wish to use the MySQL support included in the program, which makes a networked logbook for multiple stations possible.
Log4OM is constantly evolving and new versions with new features are being released regularly. The author endeavours to maintain compatibility with previous versions of the database. However, before performing an update, it is important to make a backup copy of the data because the publisher takes no responsibility for lost data.
