ADIF to DX Marathon
Jim, AD1C, has written a program that will take the ADIF log info from your logging program and create the DX Marathon Score Sheet directly. Available at AD1C’s site.
Ham2K Marathon Tools
Sebastian, KI2D, built a web-based tool that helps you check your entire ADIF log and find your Marathon entries. It’s available at marathon.ham2k.net
DXKeeper & DXLab Suite
DXKeeper, part of the DXLab Suite has several features that can help you participate in the DX Marathon.
DXKeeper tracks your progress towards the current-year Marathon award, and can directly generate a Score Sheet you can submit at year end. DXKeeper is the logging and award tracking component of the freeware DXLab Suite, which automatically identifies active DX stations needed for the current-year Marathon award; it’s available via www.dxlabsuite.com.
Ham Radio Deluxe
Ham Radio Deluxe fully supports the DX Marathon program and can provide many features including a year to date analysis on progress. Further details can be found at the following site:
N1MM+ is not a general-purpose logger; there is no support for chasing awards like DXCC and WAS. For these functions, you should be using a general logging program. If you are using N1MM+ as a logging program, you do have the ability to export ADIF format files and import those into one of the above software programs for submission to the DX Marathon Program at the end of the year
Gary, ZL2IFB, reports that Logger32 now supports the CQ DX Marathon as of version 3.37.0.
