As some may have experienced DXLog has not really played 100 % well with Flex-6000 series. At least not for SO2R where you rely on rapid switching between different bands slices. 
I have had the opportunity to test a development version that Chris is about to release soon. And it works very well. Finally, we Flexusers will have at least three good contest loggers to choose from. I know the DX Log fora is not too active but there are nevertheless valuable improvements being done by Chris in the back ground. 
For those of you not familiar with DX Log I would like to emphasize one big advantage with it.  With DX log you may produce your own scripts for different operating behaviors with e g head phones in one ear/two ears when SO2R, alternate CQs, pile up work etc etc. Very convenient.  And like the other leading contest loggers DXLog has an integrated contest simulator with dual morse runners integrated with no extra settings to get it going.

Not yet. I know Chris had to go through a hospital visit some weeks ago and I beleive that will have delayed the release. I did test it at CQ WPX but I had a crash with one of the multiplier scripts. So did not dare to use all along the contest.
I was to mail to you about the Cw script I read you made. Can you share and I could test? My email is at qrz.com.

I've been playing with DXLog in CQ160CW this weekend and have been very impressed. I'm trying to get a sense of what is possible with scripting, and have written a few simple ones so far.  I'd be very grateful if any Flex users using DXLog would share any useful scripts or mention any tips related to using DXLog with a 6000 series rig.
