With the locator, you can instantly find the contact your looking for. Help is available by pressing <F1>. A report can be printed of all contacts by pressing the hot key <F5> or just one country's contacts by pressing <F7> (F6+F7 are only available when you register). You can print all contacts with one call sign with <F6>. You may enter multiline comments for each contact. ZULU LOG BOOK will allow unlimited number of contacts to be input. You may enter thousands of contacts and locate the one you want almost instantly. Customized versions of ZULU LOG BOOK can be programmed for you for a fee. ZULU LOG BOOK is a fast program using sophisticated state of the art database and information processing techniques. One of my goals was to include an easy to understand user-interface with menus and windows. Help is available throughout the program by pressing the <F1> key. This program has a short learning curve and is fun to use. You will be up and running in no time. If you have a question first press F1 to activate the help facility. If you are still confused refer to this document. For those that are really stuck in the mud you may contact my by mail for technical assistance. ZULU LOG BOOK was written for the beginner to advanced computer user. It provides a low cost alternative to powerful logbook management and organization. You don't have to know any programming or be a computer whiz with a PhD. That is not who this program has been written for. It is meant for the computer user who uses the computer as a tool. ZULU LOG BOOK requires an IBM PC or compatible with at least 512k memory, DOS 2.0 or higher, any monitor. A printer is optional. Before using this program, you should be familiar with your computer and DOS. page 6 GETTING STARTED Your program diskette should contain at least the following 3 files: HAMLOG.EXE HAMLOG.HLP HAMLOG.DOC If these files are not on your distribution diskette this program will not operate correctly. Contact your distributor from whom you purchased the program. INSTRUCTIONS 1. install the distribution diskette in floppy drive a and close the door 2. copy all files to the subdirectory you want or onto another floppy disk (eg. COPY A:*.* C:\HAMLOG) 3. make a backup copy of the original distribution diskette (who ever does?) 4. put in your CONFIG.SYS file (in the root directory) the following commands: FILES=40 BUFFERS=40 5. to run, type HAMLOG <enter> That's all there is to it! The rest of this manual is optional reference material. Most of your questions can be answered by the on-line help in the program. GOOD LUCK AND HAVE A NICE DAY! page 7 THE HAMLOG TABLE The HAMLOG TABLE is a "table" listing the HAMLOG's country and other info. The entries will be in alphabetical order. Use the cursor keys to go to the CALLSIGN/CONTACT you are interested in. To get to a CONTACT quickly I have provided a "CALLSIGN Locator" just below the title "HAMLOG TABLE". Just type one or more letters of the CALLSIGN'S name and the program will automatically place the highlight bar on that entry. To add a contact to the table press <Ins>. The Update Form will appear with the message "Record will be added" appearing below it. After you have entered all the fields press <Ctrl Enter> to accept that record. If you decide you have made a mistake and want to cancel, press <Ctrl Escape>. That record WILL NOT BE ADDED. Also, <Escape> will move you back one field as will the up and down cursor keys. If you press <Escape> while at the 1st field you will return to the "table" without any records being added. To delete a contact, place the highlight bar on that contact in the "table" and press the <Delete> key. You will be asked to confirm the deletion. To view a record press <Enter> while on the contact in the "table". To print a report of all your contacts to your printer (device LPT1), press <F5>. To print a report of all contacts of one country, place the highlight bar on that country and press <F7>. Note: using <F6 and F7> are only available when you register. To print a report of all contacts of one callsign, place the highlight bar on that callsign and press <F6>. Note: using <F6 and F7> are only available when you register. OVERALL, I HAVE TRIED TO MAKE A VERY COMPLICATED PROGRAM AN EASY AND USEFUL TOOL TO HAVE AROUND THE OFFICE OR HOME. GETTING YOUR FEET WET BY TRYING THE PROGRAM IS THE BEST WAY TO LEARN IT.
