Re: the previous message, thanks for Scott and Kimberly for an awesome

logging program.



This has been discussed before, but now that I'm ready to make a change,

I've forgotten the answer :-)



I currently interface my ACLog with the QRZ online database that I subscribe

to. WHen I look up beam headings for a callsign i the US, it points to the

capital of the state, not to the individual station's location. That's

usually no biggie, but when working VHF/UHF stuff close in (within my state

or closeby surrounding states) it gives me a bit of a problem.



My two questions are:



1- Will the Hamcall online lookup correct this problem (does it provide

coordinates to ACLog)?



2- Can I link to both Hamcall and QRZ at th same time, or will the Callbook

configuration settings in ACLog only allow for one connection?



Thanks in advance for any feedback!

Hi Dave,



Hamcall used to, but I haven't used it in years, so hopefully a current user will provide confirmation.  I haven't experimented with multiple callbook sources simultaneously. I'm not sure what results you will get there.
