Club Log is a web-based application that analyses log files from radio amateurs all over the world. Using the logs, Club Log offers you a wide range of reports for your own benefit, and identifies large scale trends from the sum of all activity in the database. There are hundreds of millions of QSOs in the database.
In December 2011, the Yasme Foundation donated $2000 to Club Log. Wayne Mills, N7NG commented:
“Club Log is an online log, but it’s much more. It’s a new development in DXing sure to bring challenge and excitement to many DXers, young and old. As a centralized source of many DXing tools and resources, its use will grow significantly. We believe our support is well justified.”

If you participate in Club Log by uploading your log you will receive:
- Personal DXCC reports and league tables
- Detailed analysis of your log, using researched DXCC information
- Zone charts for your log, again based on detailed research
- A personal timeline of your activity (DXCCs per year, band and mode info)
- Your own log search tool, eg. to link from your web page or QRZ profile
- A filtered DX Cluster which only tells you about DX you still ‘need’
- A say in the Club Log most wanted report: your log is part of the trend data
- Access to propagation and activity predictions, using everyone’s logs
- QSL suggestions to help you send out just the cards you need
- Online QSL Requests both for requesting and receiving electronic QSL requests
- Satisfaction from taking part in and improving a free DXing resource.
One of the driving principles of Club Log is to store as many QSOs as possible, as this makes the reports and statistics more meaningful and representative. Everything in Club Log depends upon analysing real QSOs, and for this reason I am very grateful to everyone who participates.
In 2014, the Club Log project received the FOC G3FXB Memorial Award from the First Class CW Operators’ Club (FOC).
