Converting paper logs into electronic logs
I've been inactive for many years.
Now I want to convert paper logs to computer and I have N1MM logger.
Do I need to, or should I, use a different logger for general DX logging?

While you'll certainly get a ton of suggestions which logger to use for general logging (lots of personal choice there) let me suggest one tool for the general task of converting paper logs into electronic logs: FLE, Fast Log Entry, see
It really speeds up the process tremendously and will output an ADIF file you can then import into whichever logger you want.

Announcing W6SFM's BUG ROUNDUP at:
The Samuel F. Morse Amateur Radio Club, a Sacramento, California based CW enthusiast club wanted a special time to bring bug operators together on the air.
In the same spirit as ARRL's Straight Key Night, participants are encouraged to make simple, conversational, ?chewing-the-fat? QSOs using their bug type key. This is an opportunity to exercise, share and exhibit your personalized fist.
This is NOT a contest. Simply Call "CQ BR" so folks know you are a Bug Roundup Participant. Grab that bug, clean those contacts, and let?er fly! Let?s hear that ?Banana Boat / Lake Erie Swing" or that commercial KPH/WCC quality fist.
Reserve the day! Saturday November 21st - Sunday Nov. 22nd, 2015 7:00 AM to 7:00 AM Pacific Time (LOCAL) 1500 UTC through 1500 UTC
For more information and to help assist in spotting, potentially increasing QSOs, an On-line chat window link can be found near the bottom of Bug Roundup home page located at:
We hope to hear you all on the air!
