Access to the main functions of www.425dxn.org is provided by the 425DXN App
for Android. It is available on Google Play - free of charge, no ads. Enjoy!

ARRL UPDATING ITS  WEBSITE SECURITY  SOFTWARE --->  The  ARRL  website  will
update its security software on 15 October, and will disable support for the
outdated TLS 1.0 protocol to meet standards required  to continue  accepting
credit cards for internet purchases.
The same changes are coming to all of ARRL's web presence  at the same time.
The list of sites affected includes  LoTW,  Online DXCC,  International Grid
Chase, and any other ARRL web site which serves up pages via HTTPS.
Most modern  browsers  and  operating systems  will not be affected  by  the
change, as they already support  the new security standards.  Users with old
browsers  or  outdated  operating systems, however, will encounter an  error
message when trying to log in or make a purchase on the website.
The list of browsers  affected by this change and  which  will no longer  be
able to connect  securely to  any  ARRL site after  15 October includes  all
versions of MS Internet Explorer prior to 11. 
A further implication of this changes is that apps running under versions of
MS Windows which do not support IE 11 (i.e. all versions of Windows prior to
Windows 7 SP1) are likely to be similarly affected and no  longer be able to
successfully  connect  to  secure  pages on any  ARRL site  (including LoTW)
unless the application's developer has chosen to bundle a 3rd-party security
library with their app.
TQSL includes its own, up-to-date  ecurity  library rather than relying upon
those services to be provided  by the native OS.  As a result, there will be
no issue  with  TQSL  ceasing to  function on  15 October  on any  operating
system. [TNX K1MK]
