It's no secret that I am a very big fan of EQSL, I believe it is the future of exchanging QSL cards withfellow radio amateurs.

If you've got a website like I have then it's a nice idea to actually show some of the cards you have received from people around the world. The problem you have got doing this is actually downloading the cards from your EQSL account so you can upload them to your website. You may be able to download them one by one but that is very time-consuming, especially if you want to put a lot on the website. Well, worry not because I came across a very handy piece of software today that enables you to download all of your EQSL in one go. Ironically this piece of software comes from the same place that you get Ham Radio Deluxe Utilities from. You may well say that you can download all your cards using Ham Radio Deluxe utilities, you're actually not wrong, the only problem is, Ham Radio Deluxe utilities is normally connected to just one EQSL account which is fine if you only need one account, but if like me you sometimes use special calls then obviously you will need to create another EQSL design for that call.

So back to the software, it is simplicity itself, download the zip file which I have provided for you, unzip it and then install the software, nothing more to it. Then all you do is enter the call sign/username and password for your EQSL account and then download the cards onto your computer. What's great about the software is each time you open it, you can enter in a different account and create a new directory for the cards to be downloaded into.

I have removed the download link because it seems the application doesn't work anymore. I've just tried to install it but I couldn't get it to work so does my point offering up for operators because it is just very frustrating when you go to all that trouble to installer and then can't. Obviously the developer hasn't bothered to provide us with a bit of software that does work which is a great shame because EQsl is definitely the future

    Unfortunately I think you are right. The updated download dated May 2013 doesn't appear to work properly. I cannot seem to get it
