Welcome to HAM OFFICE. On this page you can download a DEMO version of the program.
Please read the following installation instructions so that the installation can run smoothly within a few minutes. If you have any questions about the program, please contact our hotline. We are happy if we can help.
After clicking on this link, a window opens to query the storage folder. If this is preset, the data is saved immediately in the download folder.
The file can be started in this target folder by double-clicking it.
Warning: Windows SmartScreen
During the installation you will be asked for a program folder and a data folder. We recommend leaving these default settings and only clicking on "Next".
This Windows feature sometimes prevents the program from starting for the very first time. A window will appear indicating this.
In this case please click on the misleading link "show more" and then on "keep anyway".
(This message is completely superfluous at HAM OFFICE and you should consider whether you want to leave the SmartScreen function activated or rather switch it off for your own privacy reasons.)
When the program is started, a message window appears containing the version number and the date until when this demo can be run. HAM OFFICE is regularly maintained and developed by us. This is why a newer program version is usually displayed in the news than in the DEMO.
After the start, a window appears that tells you to check whether the data stored at HAM OFFICE for your callsign is still up-to-date. You can use the option and enter your data or skip the hint.
The program opens with the start window. Here all important functions can be called up via the left quick start bar or the menu at the top of the screen.
When you open the QSO input window for the first time, a message window appears asking you to enter your own locator. This should also be done so that HAM OFFICE can calculate the distances correctly.
Many other settings can be made in the program options. In general, however, the program is already set up so that you can start testing the QSO input immediately.
The DEMO program is limited in time and various functions are deactivated in the DEMO or can only be used to a limited extent. For example, the functions that use the HAM OFFICE Cloud cannot be called up. This includes the online log and the cloud function in the DXCluster. When entering the QSO, the QSO is always saved with a fixed date. But to get an insight into the possibilities of the program, the available functions are sufficient.
Have fun with the DEMO from HAM OFFICE.my logbook wishes the HAM crew from ARCOMM.
