The Primary Logging form is
where you enter contact information. It is divided into logical panels
that display various statistics and information. The Contact
Information panel contains the basic information of your contact.
Depending on how you have configured ProLog, it will enter the date and time
automatically, enter default RS(T) information. Name and QTH
information can be extracted automatically from the optioanl DataMatrix
CallMaster callsign database or other major callsign databases.
Because you may enter or edit the name and QTH in a contact to a nickname or
QTH other than displayed in a callsign database, by default ProLog will
continue to use the edited name and QTH in subsequent contacts. You
can revert to "callbook" information at any time by clicking the CallMaster
button and transferring that information into the Contact Information panel.
To the right of the Contact Information panel is a real0time display of the last eight contacts you made, allowing quick visual confirmation of whether or not you worked that station recently. Great in a pile-up or if you are following a rapid list of DX Spots.
Beneath this window is the Bearing and Information panel from which you will see the entity name and antenna bearing information. The bearing information displays short and long path bearings plus return short path and return long path bearings. If you have configured ProLog to control your antenna rotor, you activate your rotor from this panel.
Beneath this panel is the Rig Control panel. If you have configured ProLog to control your rig, this panel will display the rig's frequency and mode. The connection to your rig is bi-directional which means that not only will ProLog read the information from your rig but you can change the frequency and mode of your rig from ProLog.
The next panel to the right is the Award Status Information panel. Using the ProLog famous "traffic light" system, ProLog displays the award status of a particular contact by color. The colors are user definable and clicking the Colors button will display the color definitions. Clicking the button immediately to the left of the colorized window will display detailed information regarding the contact's entity for the particular award clicked. You can also display QSL totals for paper QSLs (QSL radio-button), an electronic QSL (eQSL button - note: this does not specifically denote eQSL.cc but rather any electronic QSL, LOTW, eQSL.cc or any other electronic QSL system that may come to be), or a combination of both (Both button).
The Alert Timers panel allows you to set an alert that displays both an audible and visual alert. The DT (Day Timer) alert allows you to set an alert based on the time of day while the IT (Interval Timer) allows you to set an elapsed time alert, such as a 10 minute identification alert.
The Cluster Traffic panel lets you monitor DX Summit or VE7CC DX clusters. The window displays real-time spots received from those sources. You can set visual and audible alerts based on QSL, eQSL or Both "needed" status so if a station is spotted and the entity you don't have the entity confirmed, the alert will go off and allow you to QSY immediately to that spot. With the click of the WWV button, the screen will display the latest WWV reports.
The General Awards/ADIF Information panel allows you to define custom awards or lists of contacts based on a particular ADIF field. ProLog tracks the major awards but many operators track various other awards. You can track up to 16 General Awards and 16 ADIF fields.
Lastly, the bottom row of ProLog displays the current date and time, both GMT and local time plus, when a contact is displayed in the logging form it will display the local time of that station in the DX Time window. There are also buttons for searching for contacts by call or date, buttons for Page Mode display and an Updates button to check if there are any new updates to ProLog or its support files.
