After reading and rereading how to move my TQSL cert files from one computer to another as is explained on the website, it just won't work that way. Is there some other information on how to do this or someone out there that has has figured it out and can exlain it to me? Thanks, Bob K6VIB Oregon

Did you see https://p1k.arrl.org/lotw/faq#twocomputers ?

"Use the TQSLCert Certificate menu's Save command to export a certificate to a PKCS#12 file and then copy the file to a floppy disk (or USB key). Then on the second computer, run TQSLCert and use the File menu's Load Certificate File command to load the PKCS#12 file from the floppy disk (or USB key). The certificate will then be installed on the second computer, ready for use there. See the TQSLCert help file for more information. "

Here are links to some non-ARRL LoTW resources:

Well I decided to try it again. I have downloaded it and I think I have requested what ever it is I need. I generated the request and attached it to an email. (this could be so much easier if built in the program). I read something about a post card but don't know how to get one. I had one once before under a different call sign. Actually I have uploaded some stuff a few years ago but cannot find how to use it again. I find this whole process a bit confusing and not very user friendly. This may be why I only attempt this once every 4 or 5 years.
