AC Log Ready Calldata

If you are running AC Log 4.1 or later, you don't download the data here. If you are running 4.1 or later and want to use the free AC Log calldata option, from AC Log's menu options, just click Callbook > AC Log Calldata and click the button to download the data. That's all there is to it.

This data only includes US and Canadian hams, is a free download and is updated approximately every 3 months. The last update was 3/20/2022.

To test, simply enter a valid US or Canadian call sign and tab to the next field. You should see some of your fields populated with data. Name, State and mailing address in the Name, City, Comments field should be filled in and displayed as long as you have made them visible. If only the name is appearing, be sure that Callbook > Place Retrieved Address in Comments Field is checked.

Note - If you would like more current data, you can download the files directly from the FCC and RAC, which are updated weekly on their websites. To download the raw data, click the links below (be careful, even zipped the FCC file is over 40 meg!)

After download, you must convert these files before you can use them in AC Log. The conversion tool is not in the C# rewrite, but you can use AC Log 3.4 for that, which you will find here. From AC Log 3.4's menu options click File > Convert FCC Database or Convert RAC Database and follow the instructions on the form.
