Tlf is a console (ncurses) mode general purpose CW/VOICE keyer, logging and
contest program for hamradio.
It supports the CQWW, the WPX, the ARRL-DX , the ARRL-FD, the PACC and the
EU SPRINT contests (single operator) as well as a LOT MORE basic contests,
general QSO and DXpedition mode.
It interfaces with a morse code generator, your sound card, a number of radios,
and with a DX Cluster.
Tlf can project cluster data into the excellent Xplanet program, written by
Hari Nair.
Contest operation mimics the popular TR-Log program for DOS, the output file
is TR- as well as CABRILLO compatible. The user interface was designed with
over 30 years of experience in CW contesting.
The program was written for console mode on purpose, to make it run also on
smaller machines, or remotely via a modem link.
