    Welcome to the New QRZ system.

    Thank you for volunteering to
    join us for this test. We're still putting the finishing touches
    on these new pages and thought that it might be a good idea to
    test a few of them out before we turned the whole thing over to the
    general public.

    Please note that the most of the stories currently shown here
    are fake, created only for testing. You are encouraged to reply
    to them to test out the posting software. Just don't expect to
    get any serious replies or to take things too seriously...

    What's going on here?

    In case some were wondering, we're not changing our name to
    The New QRZ. This name is only being used for testing
    so that the server has a separate address for the Classic
    which remains online for the time being. As soon as
    we're confident that the new system is up to snuff, we'll move
    it over into the regular namespace.

    Please send any comments or suggestions that you have about the new system to so that I can
    review them directly. They'll still reach me if you address
    your emails to, but it will take longer, as
    much as a day, while the editorial staff looks at it first.

    New Features

    You will notice several new features and some interesting
    new behavior of some of the services at QRZ. In particular,
    the user callsign record update system has been completely
    revamped to include a new authentication mechanism. Many
    of you will be happy to know that you will be able to login
    to QRZ using your own chosen user ID and password and from
    there will be able to update a variety of items without
    further password prompts.

    The extent of all the new features is too many to list for
    the moment (besides, I need to get back to work on them) and
    so we'll save the big list for the grand opening of the new
    site. In the meantime, please feel free to discover as many
    new features that you can and to experiment with them.
