NDB logging software
« on: January 22, 2017, 1445 UTC »
Does anyone use software for logging NDB beacons?

I looked around and saw a few online, but I wanted to see
if anyone here uses a program for IDing and logging NDB beacons.
Maybe one that displays logs on a map also.

Thanks

DX ToolBox (Windows and Macintosh) has a database of NDBs. While it does not presently have logging, that is something I have been considering adding. If folks have ideas for what kinds of features they'd like to see, please share them here. The location (grid square at least) for most of the beacons in the database is known, so plotting their location on a map should be possible.
