Product Summary

DXtreme Monitor Log 11 is designed for active radio and television monitors and listeners.

Topics

Finding Stations to Monitor

(Top of Page)

    Finding Broadcast Stations

    You can use the Schedule Checker to check Aoki, EiBi, and FCC AM schedules for broadcast stations to monitor.

    A list box lets you switch between the three schedules at will. Updating schedules requires an Internet connection.

    Filter options let you find out what's on now, later, and from where. And the Now filter refreshes the schedule automatically on the hour, every hour for Aoki and EiBi schedules.

    For each schedule item, Schedule Checker checks your Monitor Log 11 database and lets you know by display color whether you need to monitor a station for a brand new or verified country. You can define your own status indication colors on the Properties window.

    If desired, you can apply Need New, Need QSL, and Already Verified status indications to stations as well as countries, an option that works best with FCC AM schedule data, which also displays such indications for states.

    When you see a station you want to monitor, you can:

    • Check current solar indices in the menu bar, updated automatically every thirty-minutes. An Internet connection is required, and the information must be available from NOAA.
    • Display short- and long-path bearings and short-path distance from your QTH to a scheduled station by single-clicking a schedule item.
    • Run an optional Ham CAP1 propagation prediction for the selected station from the shortcut menu.
    • When you do, Ham CAP's Chart shows the current signal-to-noise-ratio prediction by time and frequency for the path between your monitoring station and the scheduled station.

      And Ham CAP's Map shows — atop a Mercator projection — the current propagation prediction for the path and band closest to the frequency of the scheduled station. If desired, you can change the band and time on Ham CAP to see where and when it'd be best to monitor the station.

    • Perform an optional DX Atlas2 azimuth plot from your location to the scheduled station by clicking a toolbar button or shortcut menu item. DX Atlas can also show propagation information.
    • Tune your radio to the schedule item's frequency by double-clicking the item. Refer to "Rig Control in Monitor Log 11" for important information.
    • Start a log entry for the scheduled station by clicking a toolbar button or shortcut menu item. When you do, the following information is pre-filled on the Monitor Log window:

      • Class
      • Country
      • Freq
      • Language (Aoki and EiBi)
      • Latitude and longitude of the station (Aoki and FCC AM) or country (when station coordinates are not available)
      • Mode
      • State (FCC AM)
      • Station
      • TX site

    Properties

    Schedule Checker has a Properties window that lets you set default properties and determine whether verification status should be based on QSLs only, the presence of audio files you've recorded, or both. Plus it lets you specify foreground and background status indication colors, determine status indication scope, and more.

    Finding Amateur Radio Stations

    Monitor Log 11 integrates with optional Afreet Band Master3 to let you see, on its graphical interface, where amateur radio operators (hams) are operating.

    A menu on the Monitor Log toolbar lets you invoke Band Master. As part of the process, you choose the by-band Entity Needed List you want Monitor Log 11 to build and supply to Band Master.

    Each Entity Needed List is based on your Monitor Log database, making it possible for Band Master to indicate the stations whose entities (countries) you need to monitor. You can select an Entity Needed List for all bands, and individually for the 160- through 6-Meter bands. The list does not refresh automatically, but you can re-click a Needed List format to rebuild the list any time you want to. Clicking a button on the Band Master window sets the band to monitor.

    Band Master connects to a Web-based DX Cluster Server to obtain the who's-on-now information. It can also connect to DX Cluster Telnet Servers.

    Note: You don't need an Amateur Radio license to use the popular Web-based DX Cluster Server, which shows plenty of activity. But you must be a licensed Amateur Radio operator to connect to and use DX Cluster Telnet Servers.

    Finding Utility and Other Stations

    The Links menu on the Monitor Log window provides convenient access to blogs and other web sites publicizing where and when utility and other stations may be operating.

    A Links tab in Preferences lets you define the captions and URLs of up to 6 such sites and choose the web browser to display them. We've pre-populated the Links menu with suggested sites.

Logging Stations

(Top of Page)

    Monitor Log 11 lets you log all kinds of stations — radio stations, television stations, broadcast stations, utility stations, Amateur Radio stations, and more! And it lets you log stations across the entire radio spectrum — from long wave, to medium wave, to short wave, and beyond!

    You can log stations by typing the information directly into the fields of each tab of the Monitor Log window. Alternatively, you can start a log entry from the Schedule Checker.

    To assist you in adding log entries, Monitor Log 11 employs coordinate acquisition, rig control, and Amateur Radio logging techniques.

    Coordinate Acquisition

    Monitor Log 11 uses station coordinates to display bearings, maps, and propagation information. When specifying a country and tabbing out of the Country field, the program obtains default coordinates from the Countries module, which indicate the geographical center of the country.

    Precise coordinates of the actual transmitter site can be obtained instead by starting a log entry from an Aoki or FCC AM schedule in the Schedule Checker. Unlike EiBi schedules, these schedules list the latitudes and longitudes of most transmitter sites.

    Another way to obtain the latitude and longitude of a transmitter site is to enter the name of an ITU-registered transmitter site in the Tx Site field. You can do so manually, or you can click the ITU code to look up the transmitter site in the Transmitter Sites module.

    The Transmitter Sites module performs a Find operation based on the country and lets you navigate to the site you want. When you arrive at the desired site, click Send Data to Log Entry.

    For BCB-class stations: When an FCC AM schedule has been imported into the Schedule Checker, Monitor Log 11 queries the schedule data for QTH and frequency information as you log BCB-class stations. The station call sign entered on the Monitor Log window must match exactly the station call sign in the imported FCC AM schedule.

    Getting the Frequency and Mode From the Radio

    With a supported SDR application or Afreet Omni-Rig configured on your computer, Monitor Log 11 obtains the frequency and mode from your receiver and displays them in the Frequency, Band, and Mode area when you start a log entry.

    For more precise logging of modes, you can edit the Mode field. For example, say you've received a utility station transmitting in one of those exotic digital modes. Your radio will report a mode of SSB, but you may want the log entry to indicate the actual, digital mode.

    The Modes module, which organizes and populates the Mode field, can accommodate up to 30 characters per mode, which is large enough to accept the official name of any mode active today — like STANAG 4285 or MIL-STD-188-141A.

    Setting the Frequency and Mode On the Radio

    In addition to clicking a schedule item on the Schedule Checker, you can change your rig's frequency and mode using the Direct Tune tab on the Monitor Log window.

    More Information

    Refer to "Rig Control in Monitor Log 11" for important information.

    Amateur Radio Logging

    Monitoring Amateur Radio (ham) operators is growing in popularity. And in that spirit, Monitor Log 11 includes features that make it fun to monitor hams the world over.

    You've already read about Monitor Log 11's integration with optional Afreet Band Master3, which helps you find hams to monitor. Included also is integration with optional call sign lookup services, such as HamQTH.com4 (a free-of-charge call sign database at the time of this writing), Buckmaster™ HamCall™4, and QRZ XML Logbook Data4. These services let you obtain and save the following information when logging hams:

    • Operator name and address
    • QSL manager name and address
    • CQ zone
    • Latitude and longitude
    • Web and e-mail addresses

    What's more, integration with the popular eQSL.cc web site allows you to send automatic eQSL requests to monitored Amateur Radio operators. A With field on the Monitor Log window lets you specify the ham the monitored ham was in contact with.

    When the monitored ham replies to your eQSL request, you log on to the eQSL.cc web site and retrieve your eQSL, making use of QSL Imaging's screen-capture function to add the eQSL to your QSL folder. Refer to "QSL Imaging Facility" on this page for more information.

    You can also create paper reception reports for hams, and labels for sending SWL cards.

    Content

    You use the Content tab to describe the content of transmissions you've monitored. A resizable Content Editor is included to make it easy to compose your descriptions.

    User-Defined Fields

    Monitor Log 11 also provides 22 fields you can define for whatever purpose you desire. These user-defined fields (UDFs) are spread across two tabs you can also define. Log entries can be searched by UDF and each UDF is the subject of a Performance and Stations report.

    When you redefine User Defined Fields (as you inevitably will, from time to time), you can replace old UDF data in your log with new UDF data using the UDF Data Replacement facilities accessible from the Edit menu of the Monitor Log window.

    Imaging

    QSL and Improv Imaging features let you scan, capture, and view images of QSLs and anything else related to the log entry, such as screenshots. Refer to the QSL Imaging and Improv Imaging sections later on this page.

    Last Log Entries Grid

    A colorful grid on the Monitor Log window shows up to 5000 of the most recent log entries added.

    Double-clicking a row in the grid displays its log entry on the Monitor Log window, and right-clicking the grid brings up a shortcut menu that lets you sort records and access other functions.

    For example, the grid can be placed above or below the tabbed set of fields.

    You can also resize the grid columns and scroll horizontally to columns that don't appear initially. If you don't want the grid, resize until it disappears.

    Last Log Entries Window

    Because the names of stations and NASWA countries can be quite long, you can display a resizable Last Log Entries window.

    This window has all of the functions of the Last Log Entries grid and can be much wider and longer. You can display the grid and the window together or separately.

    Properties

    The Last Log Entries And Application-Wide Font Properties window is accessible from the shortcut menu of the Last Log Entries grids and the toolbar of the Content Editor.

    It lets you:

    • Change the order of columns
    • Add or remove a border
    • Set the maximum number of last log entries (from 0 to 5000)
    • Set the foreground and background colors and font attributes of:
      • Most grids in the program
      • Comments tab
      • Content Editor
      • Script Editor
      • Direct Tune

      The font and color schemes you choose are entirely up to you.

Rig Control in Monitor Log 11

(Top of Page)

    To provide our users with a robust logging program that also provides a degree of rig control, Monitor Log 11 integrates with optional Afreet Omni-Rig and popular Software Defined Radio (SDR) applications for rig control of supported radios. At the time of this writing, these programs are available on the web, free for enthusiast use.

    When rig control is installed and configured on your PC and within Monitor Log 11:

    • The Schedule Checker tunes your radio to the frequency of a double-clicked schedule item, and sets the mode to the default specified in Properties.
    • The Monitor Log window enters the frequency and mode from your radio in the Frequency, Band, and Mode area when you add a log entry.
    • The Direct Tune tab on the Monitor Log window lets you change your rig's frequency and mode directly.

    About Software Defined Radio (SDR) Applications Support

    Monitor Log 11 integrates with:

    • HDSDR (High Definition Software Defined Radio) by Mario Taeubel. Refer to http://www.hdsdr.de/index.html for more information.
    • SDR Console by Simon Brown, G4ELI. Refer to http://www.sdr-radio.com for more information.
    • And, presumably, any other SDR application that accepts Kenwood CAT commands from third-party programs, independent of the interface the application uses to control the SDR.

    Notes

    • DXtreme Software has tested its SDR interface with HDSDR and SDR Console only, connected to an SDRplay RSP1. We assume, but have not tested, that our interface will function with any radio that works with the above SDR applications.

    • You will need to set up a pair of virtual COM ports to establish the CAT connection, which is easy using a product such as Virtual Serial Ports Emulator (VSPE), owned by Eterlogic.com. Click http://www.eterlogic.com/ for more information.
    • The Rig Control tab in Preferences lets you define CAT properties. Configuring these properties with Eterlogic's Virtual Serial Ports Emulator (VSPE) is described fully in the Monitor Log 11 Procedural Help.
    • To enable Omni-Rig:

      1. Install a copy of Omni-Rig on your system.
      2. Configure it to work with your radio. Most popular radios are supported. And if yours isn't, you can create your own rig description file to enable support.
      3. In the Preferences window of DXtreme Monitor Log 11, click the Afreet Omni-Rig option button.

    Refer to the SDR Application's web site or the Omni-Rig web site for software downloads and support of their software.

Improv Imaging

(Top of Page)

    Improv Imaging is a multifaceted facility that lets you associate adhoc images with log entries. This feature is independent from our popular QSL Imaging™ facility.

    Using Improv Imaging, you can Capture from your screen, Scan from your image scanner, or Paste from the Clipboard any image you want to associate with a displayed log entry. The image can be a single-page .jpg, or a single- or multi-page .tif. You can also browse your PC for a .jpg or .tif image file you want to associate.

    For example, you can use Improv Imaging to associate the following kinds of images with your log entries:

    • Signals on a spectrum analyzer or waterfall
    • Amateur television images
    • Facsimile images
    • Screen captures of stations received on digital applications, such as Fldigi and more
    • Screen captures of Ham CAP or DX Atlas displays at the time of reception (if Ham CAP or DX Atlas are installed on your PC)
    • Any other images you desire

    By default, Improv images reside in the Improv subfolder of the c:\DXtremeMonitorLog11 tree. You can change this, of course.

    Improv Imaging Tab

    You associate Improv images with log entries on the Improv Imaging tab of the Monitor Log window.

    Shown: Fldigi by W1HKJ & Associates. Visit http://www.w1hkj.com for information.

    This tab includes a:

    • File box plus execute and browse buttons for associating images
    • Description box for describing images
    • Large, scrollable Preview Improv Image display for previewing images associated with log entries
    • Fit box for applying fit-to options to the Preview Improv Image display
    • Set of command buttons for:

      • Generating file names

      • Copying Improv images to the Clipboard (perhaps you want to paste them into reception reports)

      • Magnifying images

      • Displaying images full size in the Improv Imaging application

      • Navigating multipage images within the Preview Improv Image display

      • Refreshing images when necessary after scrolling

    An asterisk appears in the Improv Imaging tab when an Improv image is associated with a displayed log entry.

    Improv Imaging Application

    When you associate an Improv image with a log entry, the Improv Imaging application launches automatically, showing you the full image, and giving you the opportunity to continue working with it. Perhaps you want to add additional image pages, for example, or print or annotate the image, etc.

    When you close the Improv Imaging application, the Improv image appears in the Preview Improv Image display on the Improv Imaging tab of the Monitor Log window, where you can preview the Improv images associated with your log entries any time you want to.

    If you associate a rather large image (like the screenshot shown), you can click the Application button to see the image full-screen in the re-sizeable Improv Imaging application again (you can work with it, too, if desired).

    Improv Image Explorer

    The Improv Image Explorer lets you peruse the images in your Improv folder.

    It includes:

    • A Thumbnails browser in addition to the standard File List
    • A scrollable Image display for previewing Improv images
    • A Fit box for applying fit-to options to the Image display
    • Command buttons for:

      • Copying Improv images to the Clipboard

      • Magnifying images

      • Displaying images full size in the re-sizeable Improv Imaging application

      • Navigating multipage images within the Image display

      • Displaying, in the Monitor Log window, the log entry associated with the Improv image — making the Explorer act like a Search window!

    Improv Imaging Preferences

    The Automatic Backups tab lets you configure up to two backup paths for your Improv image files (along with your Database, Audio, and QSL image files).

    The Imaging tab lets you set desired properties for your Improv (and other) image files.

(Top of Page)

    Monitor Log 11 includes powerful reception reporting functions that let you:

    • Post to social media.
    • Create customized paper reception reports.
    • Create and send customized electronic reception reports (eReports).
    • Create and send club report entries.
    • Print SWL and Address labels on a standard printer.
    • Use the Social Media Post facility to create SWL and Address labels for printing on DYMO® LabelWriter®5 printers.

    Social Media Posts

    When you add or display a log entry, Monitor Log 11 prepares a post announcing your DX catch and displays it on the Social Media Post tab, where you can drag the post to your favorite social media web site(s) to share your catch with others.

      Select

      Drag

      Drop

      Commit your post by following the instructions on your preferred social media web site

    Note: The social media web site must be capable of accepting drag-and-drop operations. For sites that do not, you can copy the announcement to the Clipboard and paste it into the appropriate text box.

    Social Media Scripts

    Using the Script Editor window, you can create and edit the social media scripts that format your social media posts. By applying HTML tags and attributes, log variables, and boilerplate text, you can create the social media posts you want. Several scripts and instructions come with the software.

    The browse button on the Social Media Post tab lets you select the script you want to use.

    Paper Reception Reports

    You can create paper reception reports using Microsoft® Word®, Microsoft WordPad, or your Web browser.

    Word, Template-Based

    By using custom templates you can create and edit yourself, each reception report created in Word has precisely the format, richness, and wording you want. Reception reports include pertinent information from the Monitor Log window.

    Actual report larger, clearer.

    Several templates come with Monitor Log 11. You can use them right away, base new templates on them, or tweak them by editing. Instructions appear in the Procedural Help system. When you run a reception report, a window lets you select the template you want to use.

    WordPad, Script-Based

    By using custom scripts you can create and edit yourself, each reception report has precisely the format and wording you want. Reception reports include pertinent information from the Monitor Log window.

    Actual report larger, clearer.

    Several WordPad scripts come with Monitor Log 11. You can use them right away, base new WordPad scripts on them, or tweak them by editing. Instructions appear in the Procedural Help system. When you run a reception report or eReport, a window lets you select the script you want to use.

    Web Browser, Script-Based

    By using custom scripts you can create and edit yourself, each reception report has precisely the format, richness, and wording you want. Reception reports include pertinent information from the Monitor Log window.

    Actual report larger, clearer.

    Several Web Browser scripts come with Monitor Log 11. You can use them right away, base new Web Browser scripts on them, or tweak them by editing. Instructions appear in the Procedural Help system. When you run a reception report or eReport, a window lets you select the script you want to use.

    Sample Script

    Using the Script Editor window, you can create and edit scripts which format your reception reports and eReports (described next). By applying log variables and boilerplate text (and HTML tags and attributes in Web-based scripts), you can create the reports you want. Several scripts and instructions come with the software.

    When you run a reception report or eReport, a window lets you select the script you want to use.

    Electronic Reception Reports (eReports)

    You use special eReport scripts to produce eReports in Microsoft WordPad or your Web browser. They have the same appearance as the reception reports shown above.

    And you can send your eReports using your MAPI e-mail client, or Windows® 10 Mail (if you're using Windows 10 and your registered browser is Microsoft Edge).

    Several eReport scripts come with Monitor Log 11. You can use them right away, base new scripts on them, or tweak them by editing.

    Club Report Entries

    Club report entries let you report your DX catches and QSLs received to clubs and magazines.

    You can create single entries one-at-a-time as you add or display log entries, or you can create multiple club report entries at once.

    Club report entries accumulate in work files until you're ready to send them, usually in time to meet a monthly deadline as directed by club and magazine editors.

    When ready, you can send your entries via MAPI mail or Windows 10 Mail (if you're using Windows 10 and your registered browser is Microsoft Edge).

    Script files determine the content and format by destination. They consist of boilerplate text and log variables you can edit using the Script Editor.

    Several scripts come with Monitor Log 11. You can use them right away, base new scripts on them, or tweak them by editing. Instructions appear in the Procedural Help system. When you create one or more club report entries, a window lets you select the script you want to use.

    Sample Script

    The club report entry above was produced using this script:

    Direct Print SWL and Address Labels

    You can create SWL and Address labels by sending label output directly to your printer. Using this feature, you can print labels one-at-a-time or in any number up to the maximum number of labels on your preferred label stock (such as 30 per sheet). You can skip around, too, choosing the physical label you want to print on. Further, you can include user-defined closing expressions and signature text on the last line of each SWL label. Closing expressions and signature text are defined in Preferences.

    Using the Social Media Post Facility to Print SWL and Address Labels on DYMO® LabelWriter® Printers

    You can also use the Social Media Post facility to create SWL and Address labels for printing via the DYMO5 QuickPrint application.

    Just start DYMO QuickPrint with the desired label layout, display the log entry in Monitor Log 11, select one of the Dymo social media scripts we created (there's one for log entry data and one for addresses), and drag and drop the social media post to DYMO QuickPrint.

    In a clear area, press Enter on your keyboard to register the text. Then click Print.

Audio Processing

(Top of Page)

    The Audio Processing facility lets you record, edit, and play back WAV audio clips of the stations you have heard.

    For DXers, this feature is just the thing for reliving the capture of a rare or distant station! For listeners, this feature is useful for archiving historic broadcasts — especially during times like these!

    Verification By Audio

    The Audio Processing facility integrates with Monitor Log 11 performance reporting functions to support the concept of Verification By Audio, an exciting feature that lets you prove reception by the presence of audio!

    While there is no substitute for an attractive QSL card, let's face it: more and more stations are increasingly unable or unwilling to QSL by means of traditional QSL cards or letters. Tracking verifications by audio can be a very satisfying and inexpensive alternative.

    Non-WAV Audio File Support

    Support for non-WAV audio file assignment and playback is also provided. Refer to the DXtreme Monitor Log 11 Data Sheet page for more information.

QSL Imaging

(Top of Page)

    QSL Imaging™ is a multifaceted facility that lets you scan, capture, import, browse, view, format, and archive your QSL cards, letters, and electronic QSLs.

    Verification Tab

    The Preview QSL Image display on the Verification tab of the Monitor Log window lets you scan, capture, import, and preview QSLs.

    An arrow button at the top-right of the viewing area permits you to expand (and contract) the width of the display, so you can see more of your larger QSLs.

    When the Preview QSL Image display is contracted, a tabbed area on the left side of the Verification tab provides the typical Report and QSL fields.

    And the Preview QSL Image display shows QSL images automatically whenever you display a verified log entry. It includes:

    • A Fit box for applying fit-to options to the display
    • And command buttons for:

      • Refreshing QSL images when necessary after scrolling

      • Copying QSL images to the Clipboard

      • Magnifying images

      • Displaying images full size in the re-sizeable QSL Imaging application

      • Displaying images full size in the QSL Imaging application

      • Navigating multipage images within the Image display

      • Displaying, in the Monitor Log window, the log entry associated with a QSL image — making the Explorer act like a Search window!

    By default, QSL images reside in the Verifications subfolder of the c:\DXtremeMonitorLog11 tree. You can change this, of course.

Performance Reporting

(Top of Page)

    Monitor Log 11 has an array of reports that let you track the performance of your station and view information about the stations you have heard.

    You can run the following types of reports:

    • Performance — Lets you track the overall performance of your monitoring station. The following Performance reports are available:
      • Summary — Lets you view the number of stations, countries, continents, zones, and states and provinces you have monitored and verified.
      • Countries — Lets you view a list of the countries you have monitored, not monitored, verified, and monitored but not verified.
      • Zones — Lets you view a list of the zones you have monitored, not monitored, verified, and monitored but not verified.
      • States and Provinces — Lets you view a list of the states and provinces you have monitored, not monitored, verified, and monitored but not verified.

    • Variables-Based Stations Report — Lets you run stations reports of your own design, based on Monitor Log 11's Log Variables.
    • Log Entries — Lets you view a list of the log entries you have monitored, not monitored, verified, and monitored but not verified by station.

    Verification Tracking

    Performance, Stations, and Log Entries By Station reports automatically track the stations, countries, continents, zones, and states and provinces you have verified by means of:

    • QSLs
    • Audio files
    • QSLs or audio files

    Filter Reports

    Monitor Log 11 lets you filter your Performance and Stations reports. You can run a report that contains:

    • All of the information in your log, or
    • Specific information from your log that satisfies criteria you specify.

    For example, you can run a report that shows results for a particular:

    • Class
    • Continent
    • Date
    • Year/Month
    • Frequency, or range of frequencies
    • Band
    • Mode
    • Propagation Mode
    • Solar Flux, A-Index, or K-Index
    • Rig, antenna, accessory
    • Language
    • Sent via
    • User-defined field (up to 22 are available)

    Publish Options

    You can output the reports to the following devices:

    • To the Web Report Viewer, which lets you view reports in your web browser. You can specify the colors and text sizes of reports and, in the case of Stations reports, you can choose the fields that appear in the reports, including any of the 22 user-defined fields.
    • To a vertically resizable window on your PC. Stations reports also work like a Search dialog box when displayed in a window: if you see a log entry in the report you'd like to display on the Monitor Log window, double-click it within the report.
    • To your personal web space by FTPing your Performance, Stations, and Log Entries reports to the web automatically, where you and your friends can access them remotely. The reports appear within the Web Report Viewer.

    DX Atlas Integration

    The following reports integrate with DX Atlas2:

    • Countries — When you run a Countries Performance report, Monitor Log X integrates with DX Atlas to produce a map of pins; one color for heard countries, another color for verified by QSL countries. You can set the pin colors in the Monitor Log 11 Preferences module.
    • This map shows overall country status. You can change the projection and rotate and resize and zoom the map as desired.

    • Stations and Log Entries — When you run a Stations report or Log Entries report, Monitor Log 11 integrates with DX Atlas to produce a map of pins; one color for heard stations, another color for verified by QSL stations. You can set the pin colors in Monitor Log 11's Preferences module.
    • You can change the projection and rotate and resize and zoom the map as desired. Stations and Log Entries reports depend on latitudes and longitudes being present in each log entry. Global assignment functions are available to populate existing log entries. The following map shows stations heard and verified by QSL on the 60-Meter band.
