I have implemented a "whois" server using the callsign WHO-IS  This
server does a lookup on QRZ.com and returns pertinent information to the
requester.  It is very simple to use:

Send a message to WHO-IS with the single callsign of interest.  WHO-IS
will respond with a single message containing name, class of license
(USA only), country (non-USA only), and city,state (Addr2 line).  The
message is trimmed to 67 characters to stay within specification.

You can get a full display of the detail lines (five messages for a full
listing) by prefixing the callsign with f space (for example: f ae5pl).

Have fun.
