    Database to keep track of your shack equipment

  • Shack Equipment Database

  • A basic database you can use to keep record of radios and equipment in your shack. Included are a variety of examples to see what can be added.
    Instructions for download: Some browsers don't allow you to download database files as macros are seen as potential virus threats. Thus the .mdb extension has been altered to .md . Once you have downloaded the file, change the extension to .mdb and the program will work in MS Access.
