What is it?

RUMped is a dx-pedition and contest logging tool for short wave for the Mac. Currently RUMped supports a DX-pedition mode, major contests and a general contest mode for unsupported contests. Further you can create your own contest rules.

RUMped can use cocoaModem2.0  as modem for RTTY, BPSK and Hellschreiber.


Download the package and move the unzipped folder to your application folder, or wherever you want.  Since version 3 MySQL is not longer required!
