Oops, "Additionally creates the archive wireless-info.tar.gz if the
file exceeds 19.5 kB in size", so I suspect you already run the command
and the archive contains the log file. So assumed you want to read the
log file, then you need to extract the archive and after that read the
text file with an editor of your choice or from command line use the
command   less file_name  .
