Possible logging software 

Please,  if you have personally use logging software that is compatible with the IDQP, please let us know
so we can post that information here.

Here is a list (a short list) of logging programs that apparently support the IDQP ?.
The sponsors of the IDQP are not underwriting or recommend anything, these
suggestions are made on a  "use at your own risk" basis.  


N1MM  work for both in and out of state stations. This is a great contest logging program, and its totally FREE.   IDQP committee recommends using this.
It's  little confusing to set up for the correct contest..
If your having trouble setting it up,  and you can't find any local hams that know how,   call me at 208 251 6441  KōIP    (please, I can't help during the contest, set this up in advance)
5 minutes on the phone is worth 2 days trying to email/text  info back and forth.. I will be glad to help on the phone.

this is a GREAT program.      go Download at  https://n1mmwp.hamdocs.com/      
1.Downloads> program files> FULL INSTALL.. 
2. then without running the program , get the latest version and install it, ... Downloads>Program Files>Latest Update Files

Heads UP  ,   as of today,  2 march 2022,  N3FJP has corrected a scoring problem in his software,   WE RECOMMEND you download the latest version before this years IDQP

N3FJP State QSO Party modules DO support the IDQP.  In and Out of state.  
you can download it and try it free for the first 30 QSO's,  NOTE: get the state QSO party program, NOT the main N3FJP AC logger.. 
TO open it up for more QSO's it costs $8.99, follow the instructions at the download page.

For out of state participants ,  This is a great offer as only about 5% of the submitted logs have  more than 30 QSO's   Just remember it stops working at 30 QSO's.

For in state stations,  you will run through the 30 free QSO's in a hurry,  you will need to pay to open it up.. $8.99  You need to do this before the contest, registration  isn't instantaneous/automated...
  so give it a try.             http://www.n3fjp.com/stateqsoparty.html        

Several comments about N3FJP:  for out of state people it shows "on the screen" all the Idaho Counties, maybe making it 'bit' easier to log counties.
its simple to use, and  generates  the correct  log file,, (CABRILLO)

FYI: most logging software will NOT accept invalid entries, especially true for the county input field,    SAME is true for the State abbreviations

For valid Idaho county abbreviations  Idaho County List and Map   And for States    Click me    

Please note: most software wants a RST,  the IDQP doesn't care,  SO,,  Just enter anything you like, , It will not mater for your score.

we are sure there is other logging programs out there that may work,  but trying to test all of these  is a bit difficult.
However,  we know do know the two programs listed above work !  and generate the required Cabrillo log file.

Speaking of Logs,,  even if you only work one station,  Please send in your logs,





Others   we've been told of

GENLOG says they support the Idaho state QSO party, however (this is untested by us). and it might be free ??
their web page is somewhat confusing to me.

TR4W ??????????? (this is untested by us)
A custom configuration supporting IDQP will be available by the 2013  IDQP.

NOTE as of Jan 2015:  the  IDQP judge,  looked in the TR4W reference manual, it shows
that it supports a huge number of Contests / QSO Parties, but not Idaho
(Not sure if itís an error in the manual or if N4AF just didnít add IDQP).???       

There maybe more loggers out there,  sorry if we left your product out, 

anyone with more input please    Email us at    idahoqso@gmail.com  with suggestions, TNX !!!
