I realize that WAS isn't as complicated or controversial as DXCC, but issues do still come up.

If not its own forum, how about an "all other awards" forum?

I came looking for a WAS forum because I wonder about the "Digital" WAS category as presented in LOTW.

In my LOTW account display, I see "Digital" and "Digital-JT65" as separate categories. Is "Digital-JT65" a real award category, or just an artifact of the way LOTW presents things?

Good question! Turns out, way back when this part of the WAS table was programmed, the programmer chose to use Digital -- JT65, rather than just JT65. So, it is a real award category, but the "Digital" in front isn't relevant. A WAS award for JT65 will not have "Digital" printed before JT65.
