The script worked very well. It loaded the QSO into eQSL, however it
ends by bring the QRZ.com screen up on top with the station info you
just worked. This is really not a problem, just an observation. I
couldn't for the life of me find the script library in my computer,
so I placed it in the documents file. I have a copy in the menu bar
which I use. Another observation, when I start the script from the
menu bar, it then brings up the script editor which you click on
"run" to complete the logging into eQSL. Anyway, there are my
observations and results. Thanks 73's Tom N7KCX
