Logbook of The World to No Longer Accept Contacts Signed by
TQSL Versions Earlier Than 2.009/19/2016.
As of 1400 UTC on January 16, 2017, ARRL Logbook of The
World (LoTW) no longer will accept contacts that have been digital-
ly signed by versions of TQSL earlier than version 2.0.
Users of earlier versions are encouraged to upgrade as soon as
possible, as older TQSL versions contain uncorrected defects and
display inaccurate error messages. The current versions of TQSL for
Windows, OS X, and Linux are available online.
To date, LoTW has confirmed some 135 million contacts for its
ARRL Outgoing QSL Service to Raise Rates
09/22/2016: Although ARRL believes it’s important to maintain
the long-standing tradition of the ARRL Outgoing QSL Service as a
membership benefit, increased administration costs will require an
increase in rates, in order to keep the Service available and viable.
Effective November 1, the rate for 1 ounce of outgoing QSLs
via the Service will increase to match the 1 ounce USPS internation-
al postage rate. As of September 2016, this rate is $1.15 per ounce
— about 10 cards. An additional service fee of $7 will be charged
per individual transaction, to cover administrative costs.
PCARS net tonight at 8pm on the K8IV repeater.
Come on out to the club site! You can check into the nets from there. After the nets we have 2 dxpedition movies: Banaba Island and Peter I Island.
