INTRODUCTION

OH2GI-HAM SYSTEM is an all-mode contesting and logging software system designed primarily for on-line operation of HF digital and CW radio stations through Terminal Node Controllers (TNC).

While the primary design objective has been to provide a comprehensive system for a digital/CW contest station, the system can be used for daily contacts, both digital, CW and SSB.

Another important design objective has been the pursuit for utmost reliability and prevention of loss of data.

OH2GI-HAM SYSTEM supports practically all international digital mode contests on all HF bands. However, the system is adaptable to most of the CW contests for on-line operation and to most of the SSB contests for off-line logging and post-contest paper work.
