Poststation Fragment Analyzer

! NEW Version 1.7.6 (06.11.11) !

Deutsche Beschreibung

PFA is a philatelistic tool. It can restore postal station names from a postmark text fragment. PFA has a powerful database for postal station and postmark lists. I´ve created PFA for my personal interests in chilean stamps and postmarks, but it can be used for any country or area you like.

PFA handles postmarks, postal stations and letters. It has many tools for the postmark identifications, postmark measurements and graphical postmark filtering from scans.

The Poststation Fragment Analyzer base version is available !

Download PFA-Base version:

You can download the PFA 1.7.6 version as ZIP archive. This archive includes the complete PFA base version without the large PFA handbooks. The handbooks are separate 11 MB files. The PFA base version doesn't includes any postmarks, postal stations or maps. It's only the base software for your own postmark and postal station data.

Please download the PDF handbook and read the program description. The creation of a postmark and poststation database is a lengthly job, believe me.

- extract the ZIP archive
- start the program install.exe and follow the install instructions

You can burn the files and folders on CD, too. You can spread this autostart CD free of charge. Please download the separate PDF handbooks first and add these files in the distribution.

- copy the german handbook handbuch.pdf in the folder poststfa/pfa_doku
- copy the english handbook handbook.pdf in the folder poststfa/pfa_docu

PFA Chile

The Chile version is too big for the internet download (480 MB). It includes more than 6100 postmarks and 2700 postal stations. If you are interested in this version, please send me an email. This version is free of charge, too, but don't forget the shipping und CD costs.

I plan a new PFA Chile User group. If you are interested to support the Chile version of PFA, than click on the next link
