ARRL and CQ magazine have announced the launch of Logbook of The World (LoTW http://www.arrl.org/logbook-of-the-world) support for CQ's Worked All Zones (WAZ http://www.cq-amateur-radio.com/cq_awards/cq_waz_awards/index_cq_waz_award.html) Award program, effective immediately. The goal of the project, under way since last year, has been to create the proper technical support system so that radio amateurs can submit LoTW confirmations for WAZ credit, and that has been accomplished, CQ and ARRL said in a joint statement.

LoTW -- ARRL's electronic confirmation system for Amateur Radio contacts --provides contact confirmation when both stations upload their logs to the system, and a match between the logs is confirmed. LoTW has already supported the CQ WPX Award http://www.cq-amateur-radio.com/cq_awards/cq_wpx_awards/cq-wpx-award-rules-022017.pdf program since 2012.

"We are very pleased that participants in CQ's WAZ award program will now be able to use their LoTW confirmations for award credit," CQ Editor Rich Moseson, W2VU, said. "CQ WPX Award participants have found it very helpful, and we are sure it will be equally helpful for those pursuing WAZ and its many variations."

ARRL First Vice President Greg Widin, K0GW, concurred. "Users of LoTW have been telling us for some time that they would like to use QSLs from LoTW to apply for the WAZ award," he said. "They will now be able to select confirmations to be used for WAZ credit." Read more http://www.arrl.org/news/lotw-support-for-cq-worked-all-zones-waz-award-goes-live.
