yfktest - Contest Logging Software PROUDLY written in PERL

YFKtest is a logbook program for ham radio contests. It is easily extendable to log and score arbitrary contests. It doesn't require any installation or setup, just download and start!

First written in 2007 by Fabian, DJ1YFK. Since 2011 the coding is being done by Bob, W9YA. It's a FB logger and a great way to study perl coding. Many users prefer it's K.I.S.S. logging style.
