tqsl [OPTIONS] [log-file]...
DESCRIPTIONTrustedQSL 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 digital certificate.
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:
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.
- -l location_name
Selects an existing station location. This location will be used for the
commands that follow. If the station location doesn't exist, tqsl will
- -o output_file
Writes the resulting signed log file to output_file instead of a default
name based on the input log-file name.
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 command-line arguments.
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
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.
