the certificate loaded on that computer. (See my earlier message on how
to verify that.) Of course, that means that you need to have TrustedQSL
loaded as well.
However, what you're doing is probably not going to help you.
You can not use that file to recover from a system crash, reformat, or
use it to move to another machine.
TQ6 files are only useful once, right after you send a certificate
request to ARRL. After that, they're of very limited value. You can not
use a TQ6 file to load your certificate onto a new computer. There's
almost no reason to ever download that file other than when you've just
requested a new certificate.
To restore, recover, reinstall, move, etc. you need a .P12 file. You
are prompted to create that backup when you install the TQ6 file. If
you don't have a backup, you'll need to issue a new unsigned
certificate request and upload it to LoTW.
