Branch: master
Clone or download


Cloudlog is a self-hosted PHP application that allows you to log your amateur radio contacts anywhere. All you need is a web browser and active internet connection.



  • Linux based Operating System
  • Apache (Nignx should work)
  • PHP (Version 7 or higher) & MySQL

You will also needthe following PHP modules installed

php-curl, php-mbstrings, php-xml


  • Master - Current working copy (Commit wise frozen till v2 is ready for release, unless bug fixes needed)
  • cloudlog-v2 - This is the current development copy, while to work on bringing multiclient to Cloudlog without breaking users stable coplies, master now has a freeze on it.


You can set up the basics of Cloudlog by opening /install in your browser. Please note theres an issue with the demo account creation (password invalid) so after this process you must disable auth via the config.php file and manually create yourself a user in till this issue is fixed.

More information can be found in the wiki.

Cloudlog now has a Change Log to go along with the commit history please consult this when updating.


Cloudlog support is handled via Issues on GitHub.

CAT Control

Cloudlog supports pushing radio information just like you would with a desktop operating system this is via a desktop app called CloudlogCAT this application uses Omni-Rig thus supports most of the radios on the market.

If you use Linux, Mac or just hate Omni-Rig then Tobias (DL4TMA) has made a script called cloudlog-rigctl-interface this interfaces rigctl to Cloudlogs CAT API. This script requires PHP-CLI to be installed. If you would like a pure Bash version, Tony (G0WFV) has you covered with CloudlogBashCat which also synchronises Cloudlog with rigctld.

SatPC32 Interface

If your into satellite operations I have written a application SatPC32 to Cloud Interface which allows automatic population of satellite fields, Cloudlog just sees this as another radio interface.

QSL Card Labels

I've started building out some scripts to generate labels for sticking on QSL Cards, at the moment it supports 24 label sheets, but theres no reason for it not to support more, these can be found at Cloudlog-Labels
