Aether is a ham radio logging application for Mac OS X. Aether includes tools to quickly and easily log QSOs while on the air, as well as organize, search and track your QSOs later. Aether was designed for Mac OS X, and has the same kind of clean, intuitive, friendly interface you've come to expect on the Mac.

Awards Tracking

Awards Tracking

Aether can keep track of your progress towards operating awards. Enter a callsign and Aether will immediately let you know if that station is needed for an award you're trying to earn. You can also see a detailed report of your progress towards all your awards. Easily see who you've worked, which contacts you need QSL cards for, and the contacts you still need to make.
Rig

Rig Control via RS-232

Aether includes support for communication with a transceiver connected via RS-232*. Frequency, mode, and power information is automatically read from your rig and is filled in when you log a QSO.
Import and Export

Import and Export

Aether provides full support for the ADIF (Amateur Data Interchange File) and Cabrillo formats. If you're switching from another logging application that supports ADIF or Cabrillo (most do), you can easily transfer your logs to Aether. Aether will also export log files in ADIF and Cabrillo format so that they can easily be used with other software and submitted to contest sponsors.
Duplicate Checker

Automatic Dupe Checking

It's often handy to quickly know if you've worked a station before. When you enter a callsign to log a new QSO, Aether will quickly indicate how many QSOs you've had with this station in the past, and with one click or keystroke you can display only QSOs with this station. Aether also gives you the option to automatically fill in name QTH and other details from the most recent past QSO with a station you've worked before.
