Pileup Runner by VE3NEA
Posted: October 15th, 2012 under Hamradio, Software.
Alex VE3NEA has done it again! This time he has created a program named Pileup Runner. Alex is the one who created Morse Runner, another CW program I have enjoyed a lot. Pileup Runner is a pile-up simulator with an interface that is a mix between CWSkimmer and a contest loggingprogram.
Work the pile-up visually and use your mouse to move around in the pile-up. At first I thought that it was stupid not to have buttons to make small moves up and down in the pile-up, but after trying out with the mouse, it works excellent. You can also read the CW visually, though I’m kinda a slow with that at the moment. Another neat thing is that once again, we have a competition mode and a toplist. The big difference compared to the 60 minute Morserunner competition mode, is that it’s only 15 minutes. I find it much easier to sit down and use 15 minutes for a quick run.
If you haven’t already tried it, head over to dxatlas.com and download it for free.
Thank you again Alex for the software you write and for the time you make us waste 🙂
