7O1YGF Now in Logbook of The World

08/20/2009

ARRL DXCC Manager Bill Moore, NC1L reports that the logs for the 2000 DXpedition to Yemen, 7O1YGF, have been uploaded to Logbook of The World (LoTW). Last week, Moore announced that after more than an eight year delay, the DXCC Desk approved the operation after a review of "recently received information," as well as "additional dialogue" with the DXpedition leader.

Moore outlined the process to receive credit via LoTW for 7O1YGF:

  •  As with paper applications, if you submitted 7O1YGF in the past and had it rejected, we will accept an e-application via LoTW; you will not be charged a submission fee for the 7O1YGF submission only.

  •  Make sure you have uploaded your QSOs. DXCC cannot open and search the logs for your QSO, since doing this will not show the match that is required for a LoTW confirmation.

  •  Access your account and begin the application process.

  •  If you select only 7O1YGF QSOs, you will not be assessed the fees that LoTW will report back to you. If you choose other QSOs, a regular submission fee will apply;

  •  Complete the application (all four parts) and DXCC will place your e-application on the list for processing.

  •  A special note for 7O1YGF applications only: On Part 4 of the LoTW application, click "Payment by mail." This step is very important to assure proper handling. If you clicked on Part 1 for any QSOs other than 7O1YGF you must make proper payment. This is only for 7O1YGF submissions. Applications with other QSOs will be handled and charged as a regular submission.

  •  DXCC will not acknowledge completion of the application. When finished, your numbers in LoTW will reflect the completion of your e-application.

  •  If you achieve Honor Roll or Top of the Honor Roll from this submission and you would like to order the wall plaque, send Moore an e-mail, or you can fax your order or send the order form by regular mail.
