G0LGS SOTA Log Editor


Bob K0NR
 

I encourage everyone to submit their logs from the Colorado 14er Event to the SOTA database.
Normally, you just go here and enter each entry:
https://www.sotadata.org.uk/

Summit-to-Summit (S2S) entries are kind of a pain to enter using the SOTA website.
You have to enter the QSO as part of the activation log and then enter as a chaser log (indicating it as S2S).

But there is a better way. Just use the G0LGS SOTA log program, a free Windows program found here:
https://www.g0lgs.co.uk/soft_info.php?AppName=sotacsveditor

It has lots of nice features that help you create an electronic version of those scribbled notes you made on the summit. Highly recommend with or without S2S QSOs.

Bob,

Thanks for the heads up on the G0LGS SOTA log program. I just used it for the first time and it is awesome! It is very user friendly and a great time saver.

Thanks, Ron.
I just figured out that you can enter multiple activations into the program, creating one csv file.
When the csv file is uploaded to the SOTA database, it all gets sorted out correctly.
