Leaving has 2 options now, leaving field by clicking elsewhere or tabbing out, or only on tabbing out the callsign field. All options are available in PROGRAM SETTINGS / PERFORMANCE tab.
  • Improved ADIF import routine sensitivity to better support QRZ.COM ADIF output
  • Added dynamic detection of some specific modes in EESDR3 (FT4/FT8/JT65) to correctly identify and show the mode in the main UI

  • Updated support for N1MM (ContactDelete raised before ContactUpdate)
  • Added support for negative offset
  • Added an option for sending “true frequency” to radio on SPOT click (instead of applying the reversed offset) in CAT settings page.

  • [FIX] Fixed gridsquare issues when spot is selected from cluster band map
  • [FIX] Gridsquare value is overwritten by automatic search even with flag not checked in user preferences

  • [FIX] Fixed hamlib error level issue in configuration
  • [FIX] Fixed TCI mode switch issue (not detected by radio)
  • [FIX] Fixed an issue on offset management on TCI engine

Release note – Version 2.23.0.0

  • [NEW] Award statistics can now be filtered by ALL / WORKED / NOT WORKED / WORKED NOT VALIDATED/GRANTED

    • SENT: Single status as before / YES (include YES and QUEUED) / NO (all other status)
    • RECEIVED: Single status as before / YES (include YES) / NO (all other status)
  • [NEW] Added new “mixed search” for confirmations to concurrently search for LOTW/EQSL/PAPER QSL status in AND and OR logic (Grid search / Confirmations tab / QSL Management)
  • Increased cluster custom message max length to 60kb
  • Removed “prefix search” from clublog info search exceptions, that may be less accurate than COUNTRY FILE (CTY) in retrieving correct CQ/ITU zones
  • [FIX] ADIF_VER tag in ADIF export
  • [FIX] Cluster alert that won’t trigger “new one” under some circumstances
  • [FIX] Cluster items always highlighted as “unworked” when cluster worked before setting is not checked in the “configuration – performance” tab. Now if the check is disabled the callsign is not highlighted in any way.
  • [FIX] CQ/ITU zones incorrectly identified in some situations
  • [FIX] QSO start date no more locked when double clicking on cluster while “stop time when leaving callsign field” is set. The time now locks only when user leave the CALLSIGN field with TAB/SHIFT-TAB

Your donations

The donations that you send to us are very gratefully received and they help to offset the cost of server time, annual coding software costs etc, which we could not afford without your assistance.
In the past we have been able to send a personal thank you message to each donor by email because PayPal provided the information, however at the end of 2021 PayPal significantly reduced the information they provide to the recipient, thus making it virtually impossible for us to discover any contact details without a significant amount of detective work.

This is the reason that recently many of you have not been thanked or acknowledged when making donations so we would like to take this opportunity to apologise and to thank you all for your continued support.


Without your donations Log4OM would not be free and probably have ceased to exist, it is your efforts that have made it possible for Log4OM to continue to develop for over 10 years and hopefully far into the future.

Grazie!
