My Electronic QSL Card now on my store

Written by: | Posted on: | Category:

After many request from HAMS around the world, my QSOCardCreator program is now available for sale at my on-line store. This program was created to assist me with confirmation of my QSO contacts on Amateur radio. It can interface with either the N3FJP Amateur Contact Log (ACL) or the Ham Radio Deluxe (HRD) logs, and automatically keep track of QSO confirmation emails. The application can also import standard ADIF files from other loggers, it will annotate in its database which are sent. Each ADIF import is appended to the applications database. The application utilizes QRZ membership features to get the e-mail address of your contact for the purpose of sending an electronic copy of your QSL card.

The program requires a QRZ account with XML capabilities to look up e-mail addresses, and either N3FJP (ACL) or Ham Radio Deluxe (HRD) logging to keep track of sent e-mails. It only runs on Windows. If you meet the requirements, download using the link below use the key provided. and would like a copy, let me know. More info can be found on my web site linked below. I create the background image with a template I created in Photoshop.

You can design your own card for use with this application. A JPG file with a resolution of 1650 x 1050 produces the best results. Each graphic QSO file must have an accompanying configuration file with a .icf file extension. The file contains the font, font size, styling, and the x, y point location of the contact data (4). The program has the ability to position the contact data around the image, but the image must exist. The .icf file allows for three (3) free style text (FST) entries, as well as settings for the font, font size, font color, and X,Y coordinates for the text on the image. If these FST entries are not needed, then leave FST1:, FST2:, and FST3: blank. I have a template for Photoshop that I use to make the images. My program installer puts a copy of this in the application folder. Additional cards can be custom made for a fee. Seek out a High-Resolution Public Domain image and upload to my site, or pick from hundreds of backgrounds on my site. Go to my store and purchase the additional card item and I will create the image for you.
