"I've got you in the log"
How Geocaching Works

Here is another ham radio related cache. Just like Geocaching ham radio operators use a log book to record our activities. A common way to end a QSO (contact) is by saying, "I've got you in the log."
A station's log book is an official record of the station's activity on the authorized frequencies. The FCC has rights to visit an amateur station & inspect it.
Log Books may also be demanded by licensing authority at the time of up-gradation of license or at the time of application for special permissions.
