K4HAV's Amateur Radio 10-X Software

I saw the CT and NA Contest programs demonstrated by K1EA and K8CC at the 1990 Dayton HamVention. These contest programs cover many different contests but not 10-10 QSO Parties. After purchasing and using these programs - being an avid 10-10 contester also - I knew that I had to use a similar contest program on the 10-10 contest. Writing to the authors of these programs inquiring about the possible 10-10 addition revealed that they had no intentions of including the 10-10 contest. Since I could find no other program to satisfy my needs I began to write the K4HAV 1010 Contest Program and first used the program during the 1990 Summer Phone 10-10 Contest in August. After the beta test in the contest it was put on the market. When 10-10 International announced the new County Hunters Award, the K4HAV 1010 County Hunter Program was introduced at the 1991 10-10 National Convention in Arlington, Texas. To aid county hunters a new program was introduced in 1992 -- the Zip Code/County Add-On Package. In 1993 the 1010 Contest Program was modified to use a Sound Blaster card as a voice keyer and the 1010SB Contest Program was born.

I have never won a 10-10 QSO Contest while using the 1010 Contest Program, but looking at the top scores from the past five years will indicate that 3 or 4 of the top five will always be 1010 users. The 1010 Contest Program was not designed to give its users an unfair advantage but to make operating more fun and to take the pain out of filling out the log and dupesheet. See the links below for detailed info on each of the programs available. NOTE: The four web pages below are designed for full screen display. If you have questions or want a flyer with an order blank please Email to Jim Hardy, K4HAV --- or just use the order instruction on the Zip/Co Page.
