[CQ-Contest] I know I'm confused (Re: Why IARU?)

Don't be confused ... WRTC is an invitation-only event.  Only 42 (41?)
stations participated.

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 ...
