I am incensed that the "free" programs distributed as "Trusted QSL" are in a format that requires the purchase of an "Unzip" program - such abuse of the concept of a "free" program - this is a black mark on ARRL - what can we do about this abuse of the supposedly free programs?

Hank,

There are many free zip/unzip programs available for Windows. A few seconds with Google ("free unzip") produces quite a few listings. One of the more advanced is 7zip. It can handle zip and many other compressed data formats.
