TrustedQSL - digitally sign amateur radio contact logs
tqsl [OPTIONS] [log-file]...
TrustedQSL is a file format and set of procedures that is used to send
digitally signed QSL information (logs of contacts between amateur
radio operators). One notable service that makes use of TrustedQSL is
ARRL's Logbook of the World.
The tqslcert program is used to generate requests for digital
certificates and to store the resulting received digital certificates.
The tqsl program is used to digitally sign contact log files using a
This manual page briefly documents the tqslcert and tqsl programs.
Complete documentation is also available:
tqslcert accepts TQSL certificate files which may optionally be
specified on the command line.
tqsl accepts these command line options:
-d Suppress date-range dialog. If present, the QSO date-range
dialog will not be shown for files that follow this option on
the command line.
Selects an existing station location. This location will be used
for the commands that follow. If the station location doesn't
exist, tqsl will just exit.
Writes the resulting signed log file to output_file instead of a
default name based on the input log-file name.
-s Add or edit station location. If there is a preceding -l option
the specified location will be edited. If there is no preceding
-l option, a new station location is being added.
-x (or) -q
Exit tqsl. If this argument is used it should be the last one on
the command line. If this argument is not present, tqsl will
begin normal operation after successfully processing all
Any command-line parameter that is not an option or an option's
argument will be treated as the name of a log file (ADIF or
Cabrillo) to be signed. The resulting signed file (.tq8) will be
placed in the same directory as the log file, overwriting any
existing .tq8 file of the same name. (Note: If this option is
not preceded by a -l option that selects the station location to
be used for signing, the Select Station Location for Signing
dialog will be presented.) File names that contain spaces or
other shell-special characters should be quoted in a manner
suitable for the operating system and shell that's being used.
N.B.: If the private key needed to sign a log is protected by a
password, the user will be prompted to supply that password for
each file being signed.
