This web page is used to distribute unofficial versions of the TrustedQSL software. Please see the ARRL®'s Logbook of the World site for a pointer to official software.
The Logbook query page at https://www.rickmurphy.net/lotwquery.html can be used to query your QSOs and QSLs, with the ability to select by a number of criteria.
The following links are pointers to TrustedQSL (TQSL) V2.5.9, which is the current version of TQSL.
|For Windows (2000 or later)||tqsl-2.5.9.msi|
|For Mac OS X||tqsl-2.5.9.pkg 64-bit x64/i386|
|tqsl-legacy-2.5.9.pkg 32-bit i386/ppc|
"Using LoTW" has also been updated for TQSL 2.5.9. The help is available via https://lotw.arrl.org/lotw-help.
Please report errors, omissions, or ambiguities in the documentation just as you would report defects in TQSL's usability or functionality.
The following table lists the various types of files used by the TrustedQSL software and what they are used for.
|tq5||Certificate request. Generated by TQSLcert (TQSL for 2.0 or later) and uploaded to the LoTW site.|
|tq6||Signed certificate. Created by LoTW in response to a user.s tq5 request, loaded into TQSLcert (TQSL for 2.0 or later).|
|tq7||An uncompressed signed log extract. Loaded into LoTW which processes the log and adds the QSOs to your list.|
|tq8||A compressed signed log extract. Loaded into LoTW which processes the log and adds the QSOs to your list. Created by TQSL.|
|p12||A saved user callsign certificate with the associated private key. Can be used to recover from a lost certificate, hard drive failure, or to move TrustedQSL to another computer. Created and loaded by TQSLcert (TQSL for 2.0 and later).|
|tbk||A TQSL backup file. Contains a backup of the user's Callsign Certificates, Station Locations, preferences, and upload details. This can be used to move all of the TQSL information from one computer to another. Created and loaded by TQSL (2.0 or later).|
The following table lists the fields from your ADIF file that TQSL processes for upload. Any other fields from your log are ignored by TQSL and cannot be retrieved from the LoTW system.
|BAND||Band where you transmitted|
|BAND_RX||Your receive band||Optional|
|CALL||Callsign of the station worked|
|FREQ||Frequency of the QSO||Optional|
|FREQ_RX||Your receive frequency||Optional|
|MODE||QSO mode or mode group (PHONE, CW, etc.)|
|PROP_MODE||Propagation mode||Set to SAT in Satellite QSOs, otherwise, optional.|
|QSO_DATE||UTC Date of the QSO|
|TIME_ON||Start time of the QSO|
|SAT_NAME||Name of the satellite used||If and only if PROP_MODE is SAT|
The following table lists the fields from your station location that TQSL processes for determining where QSOs were made.

I've tried to recover the trustedqsl.org website from the wayback machine. Most of it's working well enough to be useful. Click this logo for access.
