Query Ham Radio License API

Project Description

Breaking Changes

When using pyQRZ in a project, please pin pyQRZ to a version that is working with your code. There may be breaking changes in a soon to be released version.

Install / Use

This package can be installed via pip: “pip install -U pyQRZ”

Once installed, you’ll need to create a settings file (see below) and provide the file path when using QRZ. Alternately, you may set environment variables “QRZ_USER” and “QRZ_PASSWORD” with appropriate contents.

# pyQRZ settings

Basic use example:

qrz = QRZ(cfg='./settings.cfg')
result = qrz.callsign("w7atc")
print result['fname'], result['name']
print result['addr2'], result['state']
print result['country']

NOTES: To use’s XML API for detailed data, a subscription is required. However, it appears you can get basic information with a standard QRZ user account. I wouldn’t count on that though.

I am thinking about providing a free (and opensourced) callsign lookup service, probably start off as USA only. If this is of interest to you, feel free to contact me. Knowing it would be useful would make it a higher priority.
