    I'm an LOTW user and setting up the account in the beginning was tricky to say the least, but I have my certificate(s) and have been a LOTW user for years. I have TQSL on my PC, Raspberry Pi 3 and Mac.

    Recently I started using a Raspberry Pi for digital modes. I have installed WSJT-X and Fldigi on my RPi3 and am happy to say it works very well.



    I saw the TQSL application for the Pi, but never did set it up until recently. Prompted to do so, I am happy to find it works right from the package. I used my existing callsign certificate. I made a clip showing how to save the callsign certificate container on a PC and then move it to the RPi3. BTW this process worked on the Mac too.

    Was there a specific Ubuntu or other image you put on your RPi3?

    Great question. I just used the Raspbian image and did the updates.

    TQSL V2.0.3
    TrustedQSL library V2.4
    Configuration data V11.0

    Very cool. Never did get why the Pi is rectangular though. o_O

    This? From a fellow TEXAN? :) Son... yer mother wouldn't approve.
    Cornbread is *always* square. (Cobbler can go in whatever pan is clean)

    The RPi3 is a cool little box.

    You should never screw one up running Windows. :eek:
