Is Your Version of TQSL Up To Date?

“As of 1400 UTC on January 16, ARRL Logbook of The World (LoTW) no longer will accept contacts that have been digitally 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.”[ 1 ] TQSL for MacOS and Microsoft Windows may be installed from the LoTW Installing or Upgrading TQSL page.
