SOTABEAMS Log Pad


#1

All,

I have used the SOTABEAMS Logpad for my activations for sometime, but find they have dropped them as a product.

Does anyone have any of these log pads that they are not going to use, and would be willing to part with for an agreed fee?

I realise there are other methods of logging, but I have got use to these log pads, so just thought I would ask.

I have included an image of the log pads below.

Could you make your own? You already have the layout.

Roland,

Yes. I know I could, but I find these pads very handy :grinning:.

I’ve used these from the ARRL and liked them immensely. Small and space for probably 700+ log entries in a book.

Not sure of a UK source but maybe ARRL shipping to UK is reasonable.

I clip it to a small Perspex backing.

I have published on my blog site some similar Activator and Chaser log sheets in A5 size (either for printing on A5 paper or two across on A4 paper) which I designed.

All are welcome to download and print for yourselves.

That looks a lot like the ARRL Minilog, available in paper or weatherproof paper.

I have one of these, too. I was not able to find it on UK Amazon, sorry.

Paul G4MD produced a log sheet design using Excel to suit his needs. I developed this to suit my own purposes and now use a version which allows me to log 25 contacts per sheet which is somewhat smaller than A5 in size, so it fits my clipboard. The majority of activations requine just a single sheet. I find taking some scraps of paper most useful for those CW contacts I seem to attract where every detail is passed by the person calling… usually during a period of horizontal sleet. Activating in inclement weather has put me off electronic logging , even though my phone is supposedly waterproof…
