    Spoken like a true non-XML subscriber!

    I've got two computers running with four monitors and they're both in the shack. I like my logging program and I like to be able to instantly pull up another ham's information while directing the antenna in the proper direction. QRZ fills in all the blanks allowing me to automate much of the drudgery out of the hobby.

    Dear Fred,
    I am now writing this from another state...
    This is still free, and reasonable, and Fred, I thank you.
    It's much easier than filling out a change of address card online at usps.com
    because now they charge you $1.00 to do that...Fred is Free....
    They also lost their chance to charge money for an e-mail message...
    oh well....have a nice day, and don't forget to use the large air can next time
    you clean the servers...
    I can see it now: USPS e-mail-- when it costs money, to send it over night....
    We deliver.

    Nice way to keep the BOTS away, but it's kinda' a drag to have to log-in simply to see if my last contact was in Reno or Sparks, et.al.

    "The XML service is an extremely lightweight and flexible system that places less than 1/10 of the load on our database that a "stealth" callsign lookup does on our regular pages."

    I am a fairly new Ham, and I for one am disappointed. Us fairly new hams, don't have tons of money, and I'm sorry but I think the XML look-up should be a free service. After all, you did say that the XML version is lite and doesn't require a lot of resources. Just my two cents.

    So does this mean HRD logbook and DM780 will not look up callsigns for you? I just tried it in the HRD logbook and it does nothing now:(

    I am very happy with QRZ.COM & would like to record my thanks to the chap who's made all this possible. Long may he carry on helping us (Hams) in this way.
    Again many thanks. Colin GW3WSU.

    That is exactly what it means. If you don't fork over the 59.99 a year for the XML subscription to qrz.com, it won't work.
