Configuring LoTW for use with WAZ Awards
The CQ WAZ rules state:
All contacts must be made from within the same DXCC Entity.
In accordance with this rule, LoTW maintains a WAZ Record for each DXCC entity from which you've operated and submitted a WAZ application for QSOs made from that DXCC entity.
If you have operated from a DXCC entity with more than one callsign, then merge the LoTW WAZ Award Accounts for all callsigns from that entity.
Merging LoTW WAZ Award Accounts Having the Same Entity
The first confirmation of a QSO that you digitally sign with a Callsign Certificate and submit to LoTW automatically creates an LoTW WAZ Award Account for that Certificate's callsign and entity.
If you've operated in a entity using more than one station callsign, additional LoTW WAZ Award Accounts are automatically created as QSOs submitted with each additional Callsign Certificate are confirmed via LoTW. Since confirmations of QSOs made with different station callsigns from the same entity all count towards your WAZ award progress from that entity, you should merge these LoTW WAZ Award Accounts together. Do not merge Club callsigns or callsigns for which your are the trustee, as QSOs made with such callsigns do not count toward your WAZ award progress. Note that merging LoTW WAZ Award Accounts is irreversable; if you have any questions or concerns, request help via firstname.lastname@example.org before proceeding.
