ARRL Board Establishes ad hoc Logbook Committee

In the wake of high-profile crashes and slowdowns of the ARRL's Logbook of the World (LoTW) online confirmation system, the League's board of directors has established an ad hoc committee to review current policies and practices, user issues and, according to the ARRL Letter, "the economic value of an LoTW award point or credit." The committee will deliver a preliminary report to the full board at its next meeting in July.

There is no indication of how or whether the committee's work may affect plans to introduce LoTW support for CQ's Worked All Zones (WAZ) award later this year.
