Amen!  And for lots of practical help, with step by step receipe, check out 
the work Don AA5AU has done on his site   www.aa5au.com  and look at the 
LOTW Beta Tutorial.  All his info is great, except this was for the beta 
testing before LoTW went live - but Don id's the beta and live items well.

I admit to emails with Wayne N7NG/1 to get over some items, but he was a 
champ, and the LoTW works - as others have said, I have confirms on LoTW 
where have no card.

Note, that even after the application is sent in, it still has to be 
reviewed and approved by DXCC staff - that part is not automatic.  Rest is.

73, Mark N7MQ
