Just came across CQRLOG and it looks really a promissing LINUX LOG program, the best what I have seen (not too much of cource).
What I'm missing is a LOTW support and contest logging. I know it is less then one year old....

P.S.: Tried on SLAX 6.0.7 live system.

I vote for LoTW but against contest logging :)
Contest logging is entirely different task and requires entirely different approach.
I'd like to add LoTW support in 0.6.0 version of CQRLOG.

Petr, when you start working on LoTW support, please implement it as it is done in Logger32.
First of all, Logbook has following fields, according to ADIF standard.
LOTW_QSLRDATE Date date QSL received from ARRL Logbook of the World
LOTW_QSLSDATE Date date QSL sent to ARRL Logbook of the World
LOTW_QSL_RCVD Enumeration ARRL Logbook of the World QSL received status
LOTW_QSL_SENT Enumeration ARRL Logbook of the World QSL sent status
Then, I can manually set required flags for every QSO, like "Send LoTW QSL". Then, based on that flags, I can export LoTW file to ADI format for signing and uploading it.
Then I can download and import LoTW confirmations from LoTW website into L32. The file is in ADI standard too. When all confirmations imported, in Awards menu I have an option what combination should be used for awards tracking, like "paper cards only", "LoTW confirmations only", or "Paper+LoTW" should be counted. Very useful.
One more thing, when I import ADI log, say a contest log, I have an import option of setting a "Mark every QSO for exporting into LoTW file" flag, so when my contest log is imported, I can automatically export them all to LoTW.
Same about QSOs I manually enter into log in my day-by-day operation, I also have an option to mark them all automaticazlly for being marked for exporting to LoTW file so I dont have to bother manually marking them if I want to export them to LoTW.

Depends on. I'm not talking about a program for heavy contesters with multiple seats, radios used by top 5 WW winners. I'm talking about basic contest features for an average single op station participating in a contest for fun. Something similar as offered by UCXLOG.
I agree that contest logging would be a good addition. I would also like to see a few fields added to save things like FISTS or SKCC contacts that can be searched for the purpose of tracking those. I have a Windows logging program that has contest modes, user defined fields and very advanced search functions. I'd like to see it matched so that I can pretty much ditch the Windows system, or least ignore it.
