Don't be confused ... WRTC is an invitation-only event. Only 42 (41?)
IARU is a world wide "open" event.
We only participate in WRTC as contacts. Our log submissions were, for our
purposes, only checklogs.
The only awards I am aware of were prizes (somewhat random) for submitting a
IARU will have rankings of all participants.
Hope this helps ...
