CQ WPX Award Now Supported by LoTW

The ARRL's Logbook of the World (LoTW) online confirmation system now supports CQ's WPX Award, and early activity levels suggest that the combination will be very popular. WPX is the first non-ARRL award supported by the system and the first step in eventually permitting hams to use LoTW credits toward all CQ operating awards. 

WPX accounts have been automatically created on the award pages of LoTW participants, and instructions are posted on the Logbook of the World website. Standard ARRL Logbook and CQ award fees apply. A timetable has not yet been set for adding other CQ awards, or in what order they will be added.
