QRZ has the ability to log your contacts. It's not as powerful as the others but is useful for many of us. It does not cross connect to other programs but the data can be saved.
Many hams use QRZ to get more info about whoever they are listening to or talking to.
By adding your E-Mail address you provide a way to be contacted off air.
QRZ provides a world of data about you including a map of your location. Look at the "Details" tab. You will see your Lattitude/Longitude, grid square and zone info.

SDR technology makes it possible that all listeners tune independently, and thus listen to different signals; this is in contrast to the many classical receivers that are already available via the internet.
