Update on Logbook of the World and CQ Awards

The April 1, 2012 target date for being able to apply ARRL Logbook of the World (LoTW) credits to the CQ WPX Award is being pushed back to mid-April.

According to the ARRL, this delay was made necessary by its decision to launch its new DXCC fee structure on April 2 and online DXCC applications on April 3. There have been no reported technical problems with the software needed to use LoTW for WPX, and beta testing of the system is planned for early April. Additional CQ awards will be added later, one at a time. We will provide further updates when more information is available.
