I have renewed my ARRL membership for another year.


TrustedQSL version 2.4.5

I’ve now installed TrustedQSL (TQSL) version 2.4.5 to signed my ADIF log files before sending them to Logbook of The World.

Using Xubuntu 18.04 version 2.3.1 is supported but I wanted to use the latest version. This is how I installed the latest version:

  1. Download the latest version from arrl.org.
  2. Unpack the file tqsl-2.4.5.tar.gz.
  3. Go to the parent directory of the unpacked file.
  4. Execute the following commands:
    • “cmake .”
    • “make”
    • “sudo make install”

Voila – you know have TQSL version 2.4.5 installed!

Update: Here you find the release note for version 2.4.5.


SSA Annual Meeting

Next weekend, April 12th to April 14th, the Swedish Amateur Radio Association (SSA) will hold the Annual Meeting.

The meeting will take place in Lindesberg, a small town in mid part of Sweden.

Hopefully I can get a few QSL cards checked and my DXCC mixed diploma will then show 175 worked entities.



CQRLOG, made by OK7AN Petr (ex OK2CQR) and OK1RR Martin, is the #1 amateur radio logging software for Linux.
