Not exactly true. The QRP Amateur Radio Club International offers a full range
of awards that recognize EQSL verifications. Just 2 requirements though...
1. The EQSL must come from a Authenticated member of EQSL and the applicant
for any award must also be a Authenticated member if they use EQSL
verifications to qualify for a award.
2. Our awards are for QRP operations only.
The EQSL website has a list of every organization/or award that accepts EQSL
It is a shame that the ARRL choose not to recognize EQSL. But I also
understand their "if we did not think of it, it is not worth our effort"
By the way, I have asked that our awards program be included in LOTW..but I
suspect that is several years away yet.
As for the expense of LOTW...I find that it is a lot cheaper than about 90% of
the money I have spent over the years for QSL cards. I still prefer a good old
paper card for the "beauty" of them.
