OK, how about providing an LoTW API or function that lets [authorized] awards managers submit lists of entrants’ QSOs for validation? 

 

If this was available, potentially any award could start accepting LoTW confirmations … and LoTW would suddenly become even more popular.

 

Contest logs might also be validated in the same way, although the volume of checks could be problematic unless they were rate-limited (e.g. by charging for each QSO submitted?) and/or the validation function was slick as a well-oiled Teflon coated pan.

Hello John et al,

Yes, absolutely, it makes sense to have WAC added as an award that one can apply for via LoTW.  In fact, it and a few other awards are on the to-do list.  Also on the horizon is a refresh for LoTW, up to a 2.0 level.

Both are very much in active review on this end.  More updates will follow as we have news to report on either.

Keep the suggestions coming!
