Hardy Data Systems
Official 1010 Software
The Win1010 Suite is actually four programs in one EXE Program File and is sold as two packages: Package One is the Contest Program and Package Two is the County Hunter and Certificate Chaser Program. A Daily Log Program is also available in the Win1010 Suite and works with both packages. Normally the Contest Program is referred to as Win1010 and the County Hunter Package as Win1010CH. The programs are sold in two packages because many of the County Hunters, Certificate Chasers and Awards chasers do not work contests. And likewise, many of the contest people do not collect awards. So you don't have to pay for a module that you won't be using. However, if you only purchase one package, the other package is still present in the Win1010 Suite and works in the Demo mode with a 25 record limit.
This is the new Windows 95/98 Version of the K4HAV 1010 Contest Program. Download it from the Internet and try it in the Demo Mode which will allow you to enter up to 25 QSO's. This program combines many of the features of the 1010 and 1010SB Contest Programs, the K4HAV FCC Search Program and the Zip Code Program. A separate County Hunter Program with Certificate support has been added. A screen capture display of the contest program is posted to a web page. Some of the features of Win1010:

A contest database (DB95.DAT) is also included that is a collection of over 18,000 hams that have worked the previous contests.
